Ancient Oak No 0002

Ancient Oak No 0002

This is the tree described on the 1816 perambulation as ‘a very ancient Oak Tree apparently as old as the most ancient tree in Birkland Billhaugh which Tree is remarkable as being the only ancient Oak Tree in Birkland which remains standing within the Manor of Warsop’. Looking behind this tree there is a younger oak growing - could it be a clone growing from the stump of the old tree or maybe it could have grown from an acorn dropped from its ancient neighbour?
