The Grange Trees
The garden of The Grange has mature trees and Dogs Mercury, a plant indicating ancient woodland, can be found in the area of woodland together with Bluebells and Wild Garlic. Rothley is known for its ancient Oaks and Ash with our largest Oak in the village having a girth of 24 feet 8 inches and is in Rothley Park close to the boundary of the Rothley Court Hotel.
The main trees in The Grange gardens are Oak and Blue Cedar with a beautiful Wellingtonia. There are also Willows along the edge of the channel and at the far end by the Fowke Street bridge.
