The 500 acre wood or '100 akre wood'. The red arrow shows the location of Owl's Tree as pointed out to me by someone who knew A. A. Milne - or Christopher Milne or both of them (I am not sure which). You can walk to the location indicated by parking at the Half Moon Inn (where it says 'Inn' on the right-hand side of the map) and then walking up the lane as shown. The tree, which is an oak, is right beside the lane. As you can see, this location does not agree with the location of 'Owl's House' as shown on the map; other sources say that the tree was a beech and that it was blown down in a storm. I do not know which version is correct, I can only repeat what I was told.
