Notes: April 1998 - The tree consists of several fragments around a large space that was once filled with an oil tank. When the tree's significance was realised and publicised the tank was removed. The tidying up process was perhaps over-zealous and important pieces of old trunk were also removed. The sequence of photos by P.Davies is from 2014 and shows the various component parts of this exceptional tree. The last photos show sections of old sapwood which have been left in situ.
