SP4903 : Matthew Arnold's "signal elm"?

near to Foxcombe Hill, Oxfordshire, Great Britain

Matthew Arnold's "signal elm"?
Matthew Arnold's "signal elm"?
Said to be the remains of the "signal elm" mentioned in Matthew Arnold's 'Thyrsis', this dramatic dead tree was actually an oak. Chilswell Farm close by is rendered Childsworth in the poem.
Runs it not here, the track by Childsworth Farm,
Past the high wood, to where the elm-tree crowns
The hill behind whose ridge the sunset flames?
The signal-elm, that looks on Ilsley Downs,
The Vale, the three lone weirs, the youthful Thames?
