Cathedral Oak

Oak Tree Corsham Court 02092009 004

Last week I went for a walk across Corsham Court’s parkland as Mark, one of my regular local readers over at Veg Plotting had tipped me off about an oak tree that had split in half.

It’s an awesome sight and when I stepped underneath the fallen portion, I felt like I was standing in a cathedral of oak. As the leaves are brown, I’m wondering if this portion of the tree was already dead or dying and last week’s strong winds were enough to bring it crashing down.
