A two hundred year old oak tree, beside Garden Pond, has become a victim of the recent snow and cold weather. It has fallen into the pond and it is blocking a path to the popular Walled Garden at Wallington. The pond is home to many types of wildlife, and has until the past few days been completely covered with ice.
Visitors are diverted away from the problem area and follow the road around Garden pond, to get to the Walled Garden entrance gate.
The tree has been a feature in the historical grounds and gardens associated with Wallington Hall.

Visitors to Wallington Hall now follow a new route, for those who have never been in the property before; they are minutes away from seeing something rather special.
In no time at all, they come to an impressive part of the building - the Central Hall. The paintings of William Bell Scott are always guaranteed to make the visitor linger and ask questions. Out of all the eight paintings that illustrate Northumbria's history with life size figures, there is one face in the collection that will always be linked to specific parts of Hadrian's Wall.
