Those are great looking trees and I'd bet some creature does live in the cavity of that first one. Did you stick your hand in there?

Fantastic-looking trees... how could myths and legends not have sprung about them?

thanks for the comments, and no way did i put my hand or head in there to see if there were any surprises!! i have been known to be fool-hardy on occasions but no, no, not this time,

Those elves are of the 'Rascal' clan

Bill, did you hear that launched this very morning is a Woodland Trust 'Ancient Tree Hunt' ... http://www.ancient-tree-hunt.org.uk/? I think you may well have a candidate there.

They were talking about a 5,000 year old yew on the 'Today' programme this morning, that may have some true tales to tell let alone the myths & legends.

thanks for the tip Alan, i missed that, dont watch much tv.

I took the pictures in Burnham Beeches which is a protected woodland with rangers to look after it so the 'Druid oak' which is there and probably the oldest is well know but i will certainly look for others, cheers
