This wonderful tree has a girth of 6.5 metres and has been recorded with the Woodland Trust in their "Ancient Tree Record".  How old do you think it is?

Four hundred years old?  More information will be added as soon as it is available.  


In the meantime, thank you to the previous and current owners of the land on which the tree stands for

allowing these photographs to be taken.

The inside of the tree is completely hollow.  Generations of children have played inside here....

.... but the tree is healthy and continues to put on new growth.
