There are many cemeteries, church grounds and graveyards throughout Exeter. Typically these places are overlooked when it comes to trees and shrubs - but you'd be surprised what you'll find. For instance within the grounds of the St Thomas the Apostle Church there is a Lucombe oak, Turkey oak and several Black pine. In the St Bartholomew's Cemetery there is a Common walnut, Fern-leaved Beech and a Sweet chestnut. Nearly all of these places have Yew trees which can last for over a thousand years! In fact, the oldest tree in Exeter is a Common Yew and this can be found at St Michael and All Angels which is in Heavitree. It is thought to be over 500 years old.
