The Gresford Yew

Even with the help of my husband giving perspective it is hard to capture on camera just how big this tree is in the flesh. Estimated to be in the region of 1,600 years old this lapsed coppice Yew (Taxus baccata) is a magnificent specimen and well worth a visit. I wonder how many longbows and other weapons or tools were created from its earlier timber yields.
