Small leaf lime tree (Tilia cordata)
The girth of this tree is extraordinary and I'll go back to measure it. Some people think such trees may have been planted a couple of thousand years ago. Shoots will sprout on the trunk near the ground and if they aren't eaten by animals they can naturally layer and create new trees. Hence 5 metre stretches of small leaf lime hedge can be seen in this countryside of many hedges. In spring look out for the specially bright green young leaves.
