The order of the morning session is as follows:

  • Meet at the Pavilion for coffee/tea (Provided by the BA) at 10:30
  • Walk 15 minutes to the willow beds at Rothamsted Research (it’s possible to drive which would take a couple of minutes)
  • An hour long morning tour by William Macalpine of the willow beds
  • Walk 15 minutes back to the Pavilion
  • Lunch (Provided by yourself)
  • Talk by William Macalpine about the history of the willow collection and the current research it’s supporting

This is a free ticket. Please book a ticket so that we know the numbers of people attending the morning tour.
