An Article on the Three Elms

The Three Elms – even the oldest King’sman will remember them. They are older than the college itself, probably by some fifty years. When Mr. Grey made the sketch to which we have already drawn attention, these three trees must have stood alone in their quiet dell. There was no road led by them, and no right-of-way had been aquired through the fields which seperated the College from the town. Long Pond was in the College grounds, and the level ground to the east of it was the cricket field. There was no intervening spruces, so the graceful elms were in full view of this field, and the path from the College to the field led by them : hence the name, which still survives, of the "Three Elms Cricket Club". When, in after years, the spruces grew up on the higher ground about them, the elms were almost hidden from sight, and it was not much more than fifty years ago that the trees were cleared away so as to bring them again to view.
