This is the walk . . .
. . . with the tree we are visiting straight ahead, on the left hand side of the path.
It's very tall - which I know isn't a precise way to describe it - but, for scale, a car could pass down this track easily and have room to spare either side.
Its needles are like this.
There are several trees like it. Ivy grows up one of the narrower trunks.
The bark is peeling from them all. I'm startled by the red. Shiny and wet in the autumn rain, the exposed wood looks like flesh.
It has dinosaur toes.
I was going to check with iSpot - but the site is down so . . . does anyone know the name of this tree?
(It isn't Fred.)
