A special tree planting ceremony is being held at Epworth Old Rectory later in the month as part of a move to restore the Grade 1 listed building and its grounds to the way they would have looked more than 300 years ago.

A Mulberry tree will be planted in the grounds on Tuesday, October 22, at 11am.

Reverend Claire Potter said the plan was to grow trees there that would have been present when the Wesley family lived at the Rectory.
