The Sowman's Elm

This magnificent tree in the courtyard has been around as long as Sowman’s itself. It’s at least 150 years old and still thriving.

Elm trees are traditionally associated with the cycle of life, death and rebirth. They’re the Christian symbol of strength. When the Sowman’s elm bursts into leaf every Spring, it never fails to lift our hearts.
