Sweet Chestnut

There are a mass of sweet chestnuts (castanea sativa) around Bournemouth.  These look very exotic with their big serrated leaves and their long white catkins.  These can live for up to 600 years so they should be in our streetscape for years to come yet.  Here are som pictures from Chine Crescent Road.
