Ancient oak

'Puthery' is a word used in Staffordshire to describe those sorts of days which are warm, humid and breathless, and you can get a layer of sweat by just walking along quickly. 
Today was one of those days.  The sky was luminously gray - and not a ray of sun got through the cloud.

On the Teddesley Park Estate was this ancient oak tree - which has apparently been there since the before the days of William The Conqueror.  You pass it on the Acton Trussell Walk

  1. I saw a 2000 year old oak a couple of weeks ago though it was more dead than alive
