Childhood memories of a beautiful old tree

I recently took some children for a walk around Nottinghamshire’s Major Oak which is renowned as the legendary Robin Hood’s hiding place. The old tree is now held up by scaffolding but is revered by locals and people come from all over the world to see her. As a child I played inside the old tree and marvelled that the great Robin Hood had had has his feet on the very ground on which I was standing.
Today the Major Oak is protected by the local authority and visitors are only permitted to stand about twenty yards from it at the ropes but even as a visitor I still marvel at her magnificence.

    • Yes it is beautiful isn’t it and yes it still has lovely leaves for an old oak. I’ll photograph it later in the year at various seasons so you can see her. In autumn the leaves turn golden brown, truly beautiful x
