Nearly There Trees

25 Oct 2017


On the A30, close to the border between Devon and Cornwall, is a copse of beech trees with almost iconic status.   For locals and holiday makers alike, they are a heart-warming image that their journey is nearly over. The Cookworthy Knapp trees were planted around 1900 and over the years have acquired many different terms of endearment.  Cornwall Beyond, Grandma’s Trees and Nearly Home Trees are a few of the names in common parlance.  However, we quite like Nearly There Trees……



... and thanks to Claire Harris and her Cornish handmade fused glass, we can still view them from home.
