  1. I’ve seen images of this tree when it was still alive and in full bloom in about 1920, ish.
    As the roof of the church collapsed in 1956, I am wondering if perhaps lightning strike may be linked. It is something I’m trying to look into with past weather records, but they are difficult to locate.

  2. Is this the horse chestnut tree on the end of the mound if so it was still alive in the late 80’s I’m sure I have some photos of it somewhere in full flower.

  3. The photographs I have of this tree in full flower were taken in spring 1987 from almost the same place as this one I also have some shots of the church taken about the same time if you are interested I will email them to you.
