Well, it goes like this sometimes

‘Well,’ said Agent Jeff, ‘it goes like this sometimes.’ Indefatigable Agent Jeff in Hereford has found another four monkeys.

Very early on in this blog I suggested my theory of ‘clusters’, as it so often happens that when you find one monkey, there’s often another one or even several nearby. I observed this in Knowsley village – here, around Queens Drive in Liverpool – here, in Grange-over-Sands there were several clusters – here, Agent Jeff has also found groupings like this, he found a clutch in Malvern – here, also in Hale village in Liverpool – here (a particularly dangerous hunting expedition that one).

And Agent Jeff has continually combed his home ground of Hereford for monkeys – in the postcode area of HR he has found 48, and many are in the town itself, as you can see on this map:

Jeff was off on unrelated monkey business when he spotted the first of his new cluster in Highmore Street – as he observed it is ‘lopped unfortunately’.


HR45. Lopped.

And this is good reminder of the size that monkey puzzles reach – this tree is dwarfing the house and they’ve cut the crown off… which gives it a bush-like appearance. And further up the same street, here’s another one – possibly inspired by this larger one?





Just up the road and round the corner, in Westfield Street Jeff spotted another one.

A very fine monkey indeed, a lovely female tree.



And thinking that was the end of hunting for the day, Jeff then found this one in the back garden of Lyde Street.

So – well done Agent Jeff. Good work as usual, and four more for the catalogue in HR, and the overall UK catalogue is now up to 269 monkeys.
