This is the larger of the two trees and grows south west of the church. It is a fragmented tree with signs of having been considerably larger. At a height of about 7′ is a double chain, with a further one at about 12′, each attempting to keep the fragments from further separation. Much convoluted internal growth linked the two fragments.
