Oh What Stories This Tree Could Tell!
Worcester College has a few very large, very old, Plane trees in the grounds. Believed to be a few hundred years old, one such tree can be found in the middle of the lake side border. Ivy had started to creep up the wide trunck and needed to be removed. Simon and Ady cleared the ivy but couldn't resist standing amongst the huge branches, oh what stories this tree could tell!
