• Majesty - one of my favourite oaks

    Down in Kent yesterday & managed to get time to drop in on an old friend - Majesty, in Fredville Park, nr. Nonington is the largest maiden English oak in Britain - a humungous 40 feet around. It's one of those trees where you just want to keep on taking more and more shots and it really is hard to drag yourself away. You will find other shots of it elsewhere, but I am bound to say that it is on private land, so permission to view is essential. I've put in this shot so that you can gauge the massive scale of the beast. Sadly, a huge bough (just in view on the left) fell to earth last year, but the tree seems fine otherwise.

    Check out the face in the bole too. Who says Ents aren't real!
