  • Visiting on 10 August 2016 Lafarge Aggregates had (apparently under public pressure) opened public access to much of Panshanger Park, including access to the Panshanger Oak. The site remains privately owned.

  • Good public access from permissive footpath. Tree had a fence around it to protect the roots. Tree girth 792cm in June 2020.
