VISITING THE TREE
The tree is accessible via a nearby footpath. The path can be muddy and is quite steep in parts.
The footpath can be reached from Derwlwyn Lane (also known as Delwyn Lane) on the outskirts of Llanfyllin.
Following Delwyn Lane takes you over the old railway bridge, a bridge over the Cain river, past a sharp turn to the left and then a cattle grid. Shortly after you pass the sewage works, there’s a small stream coming off the hillside, just after this, turn northwards (left) and follow the track uphill.
You’ll pass a small spring (Jack Saddler’s Well) on your left that streams along the path and then there’s a wide up-sloping valley. Aim for the signpost at the top. Once you’re at the crest, look for the path leading right. The tree is about 100 yards south-west from this point.
Please be aware that although most of the walk up is a public footpath, the tree itself and the path leading to it is on private land. The Lewis family have kindly allowed access to the tree. Also sheep graze on the site, so please keep dogs under control.
