Limes Trees Reaching End Of Natural Lifespan

Following inspections by independent tree specialists and Rugby Borough Council, the College will sadly be starting a removal of some of the Lime trees along the Lime Walk over the Christmas holidays.

The trees, which date back to the early days of St Mary’s Priory, are aged around 150 years and have reached the end of their natural lifespan and there are signs of disease developing. The removal of some of these unhealthy trees will unfortunately compromise the remaining trees, which will ultimately lead to the phased removal of all the trees along the avenue over a period of time.

We know that this news will be upsetting to the Princethorpe community as the Limes are a much loved and integral part of the Princethorpe skyline. However, a planned programme of replanting will begin elsewhere on the campus to commemorate the trees and the part they have played in the school’s rich history. Plans for landscaping and improving the area for school use will be shared as soon as they become available.
