Monumental trees in Knole Park in Sevenoaks

Here more than 3 trees are described in Knole Park in Sevenoaks (county of Kent).

Knole is an English country house surrounded by a 1,000-acre (4.0 km2) deer park. It is reputed to be a calendar house, having 365 rooms, one for each day of the year.

It is remarkable in England for the degree to which its early 17th-century appearance is preserved, particularly in the case of the state rooms: the exteriors and interiors of many houses of this period, such as Clandon Park in Surrey, were dramatically altered later on.

The surrounding deer park is also a remarkable survivor, having changed little over the past 400 years except for the loss of over 70% of its trees in the Great Storm of 1987.
