1910 The Pound Tree on the Green

The Pound Tree was so called because the pound for stray animals had formerly been situated nearby.

The tree is shown on the Duke of Bedford's estate map of 1762 and gradually died in the 1930s.

The Crown Inn can be seen on the right.

The Victorian Park Cottages (adjacent Park Avenue), originally built for the servants in Houghton Hall are seen behind the tree.
