Tree with a story
The 'Pumpkin Tree'; sadly this tree died perhaps 40 years ago. The suppression caused by the conifer trees planted around the tree led to its decline as it could not get enough light to survive. The conifers have recently been felled leaving this unually shaped stem standing as a reminder of the ancient oak wood pasture that would have covered much of this area.
