Whipsnade Tree Cathedral, Near Dunstable Bedfordshire managed by the National Trust. Free to visit

Formed by twenty-two different types of tree and fourteen types of flowering shrub making a 'cathedral of trees' based on the floor plan of Liverpool Cathedral. It was created in 'faith, hope and reconciliation' in the early 1930's by Edmund Kell Blyth as a memorial to three of his comrades from the First World War

'We talked of this as we drove south through the Cotswold Hills on our way home and it was while we were doing this, that I saw the evening sun light up a coppice of trees on the side of a hill. It occurred to me then that here was something more beautiful still and the idea formed of building a cathedral with trees.'

– E.K. Blythe, 1940
