If you enjoy the tranquility of the St John’s Priory cloister garden, you might have noticed a new arrival: a huge, hundred-year old olive tree.

The garden is known for its medicinal herbs, which were used by the Knights of the Order of St John to care for the sick and wounded in Jerusalem during the Crusades. Now it has a two-tonne olive tree from the Portuguese-Andalucian border. It was transplanted to the UK by tree specialists Villaggio Verde.
