Additional Information

Go south out of Ormiston, turn right at main road and then left about 50 yards later. Follow the dirt road to the left, it will bend to the right, but go left until the road will fork. Take the left fork and in a short while you will see the ruins of the old Ormiston House on the right (not where Wishart and Knox stayed) and just after this there is a place to leave the car on the left. Opposite this area there is a pathway that leads into an open space. On the right are twoYew trees whose branches have interwoven with one another. There is a pathway under the canopy between the two. The larger is on the left.
