Notes: The church is 1868-70, but dates back to Norman times. This lost is recorded, its girth 11'. In this stump, rings were visible for 202 years of its growth, from 1776 - 1978 when it was felled. The middle is rotted and hollowed and I considered an estimated age of 320 - 360 years to be indicated.
