Yew Tunnel at Aberglasney Gardens
The Yew Tunnel is located in Aberglasney Garden, which is set in the Tywi Valley, Carmarthenshire, West Wales. The Yew Tunnel is one of the most famous tourist attractions of Wales.
The Yew Tunnel has a long history, and was planted during the eighteenth century by the Dyer family. When the yew trees had grown tall, they were bent over to form an extended arch to create a tunnel.
The yew trunks spread and their branches fused, so today it is hard to count how many separate yew trees are in the tunnel.
