An ash tree was planted by the Millennium Tree Line (MTL) project at either end of this footpath, which runs almost due north-south along the Meridian. The planting ceremony took place at 14.30 on Friday 27 February. The invited guests included the local Parish Council Chairman and Clerk. The trees were donated by Crowders Nurseries and marked with MTL discs. A failure to loosen the tree-tie caused this particular tree to become strangled, with subsequent dieback (2005 and 2007 image sets). The post with the MTL disc is now missing.
