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 trees were donated by Crowders Nurseries and marked with MTL discs. It is said that this particular tree was originally planted on the other side of the path directly behind the property now known as Meridian House. Because the tree would eventually have overshadowed the house, it was moved to its present position soon after the initial planting, The new position has also proved unsatisfactory as the tree's growth has been stunted by a previously existing ash tree growing immediately to its north. The post with the MTL disc is now missing.
