    The yew trees are at least 500 years old, and some are 2000.
    I could have done better, but nonetheless these are things to behold:

    I loved it. I'm going to have to google it and read more.

    To quote Smokey Robinson, is it just my imagination running away with me, or are those squatting humans that somehow melded into the tree? :biggrin:

    Very very interesting. :smile:

    Indeed, it would be nice to live nearby and go back often in differing conditions.
    We didn't manage to make it up the hill ridge but I expect there are some very good views up there.
