Legacy to landscape: linking King John’s Oak to the future

The 1st Epoch Ordnance Survey maps completed in the 19th century marks a tree in Shute Deer Park labelled as King John Oak. The oak is at the centre of a new landscape project to ensure its values are carried into the future.

King John’s Oak is a mighty oak, fit to be one of the earliest of oaks named after a famous King, with a girth of over 10 metres.

East Devon AONB is leading the partnership aimed at engaging landowners and the community to inspire a fresh look at the local landscape and to identify features of value and ways to carry those values forward in part by establishing more trees to become ancient trees in the future.
