This is my favourite tree - it stands on top of a hill"I pass this tree at least 3 times a week on my dog walks, so I see it in every light, weather condition and season. It never fails to inspire me and I have been known to talk to this tree. I mentioned this to another dog walker one day who also uses the same route - and guess what ......she also talks to the tree. So I have liberated tree talking if nothing else. This tree is a parody of human endeavour, it stands alone high on a stony hill top. Every time the roots hit a stone it is reflected in the canopy of gnarled and fused branches. It has stood for centuries, now a sentinal of the salvage, a tribute to Essex agriculture and a symbol of our English heritage." Charmaine Alexander
This tree stands at the top of a hill between Moreton and Bushes Farm. It stands on private farm land so there is no direct access, but it can be seen from a public footpath that runs close by.
