A Truly Ancient Oak

I heard about a truly ancient oak last weekend, in one of the South cambs villages i grew up in, and went to meet it. There’s been some arson, and nails banged in, as well as symbols, & the name ‘big alex’, and litter….but signs of care and community effort to protect. A couple of signs have been attached, one of which is really moving, and I read it out in this short piece which I offer to all donors today in the hope some of the saplings we’ll plant become such mighty oaks!
