Burnham Beeches

Burnham Beeches, a tract of forest extending over some 600 acres in the parish of Burnham, Bucks, about 3 miles N.E. of Maidenhead. It is supposed to date from pre-Roman times, and certainly contains some of the finest and oldest specimens of the common beech to be found in England. The property is now held in trust by the Corporation of London for public use.
