SK1536 : Lane Junction and Vernon's Oak

taken 3 years ago, near to Little Cubley, Derbyshire, Great Britain

Lane Junction and Vernon's Oak
Lane Junction and Vernon's Oak
The ancient trunk on the right of picture belongs to one of the county's most celebrated trees. A nearby farm is named after it and the Derbyshire Wildlife Trust Archive proudly states [that] "with a girth of 6.3m this ancient oak tree is likely to be well over 400 years old". Vernon is of course George Vernon, founder of Sudbury Hall and although he died in 1702 it's more than likely that he would have passed this mighty oak many times on his tours of the estate.
