Fig at Lambeth

Today the Bishops at the 2022 Lambeth Conference are visiting Lambeth Palace in London where the focus of their work will be on the Environment. We visited Lambeth Palace in 2010 and Nigel photographed a huge sprawling fig tree by the Great Hall.. and I’ve just found the fig tree was planted in 1556! There’s more information about the fig and its history at: The 465 Year Old Fig Tree Hidden In Lambeth

  1. What a beautiful and venerable tree. May it inspire those who gather inside the church walls to protect our precious environment. For far too long the Church has lived and taught to “subdue the earth,” and what that has resulted in we are experiencing now.

    1. I hope so Tanja. And btw there were a large contingent of American bishops from The Episcopal Church at the Conference, all of whom would’ve attended this special day at Lambeth Palace.
