Wellingtonia tree

Painting by Michael Barnard of the Wellingtonia tree which used to stand in Badsey High Street.  Michael gave the sketch to Daphne Cleaver in 2014 after he read Norman Cleaver’s poem, “Hoisting the Jubilee Jack”, about the Union Jack being placed on top of the tree on the day of the Queen’s Silver Jubilee, 1977.

With thanks to Daphne Cleaver (widow of Norman) for permitting us to use this image.
