You have come up trumps again with link Peter. I enjoyed reading that. I seem to remember a song as well...different words though.

Cheers, Rosa.

Majestic, how old is this one dear Rosa? Really impressive!

Best wishes, Maja

Good evening dear Maja, the tree was planted in the 1850's! It would be nice to see it there in another 100 years...not by me personally ;))

Warm winter wishes, Rosa.

Hi Rosa The bark on the Sweet Chestnut is one of my favorites, we dont seem to have that many Large sweet Chestnuts in my area. (Like 10) regards Bob

It's amazing how the bark of trees differ. Thanks for like 10.

Regards, Rosa.

Hi there Rosa :-) The spiral pattern to the bark is a remarkable sight... Lovely to see it....
