Propped Up

This is supposedly the tree that Robin Hood hid in The Major Oak, if you believe the myth of course. Its a great old tree, but is spoilt by the support poles holding its huge branches up, plus its far to tidy around it and you can't get near it, due to fencing. Apparently a few years ago you could climb on it, how things have changed :(
