taken 13 years ago, near to Wraysbury, Windsor And Maidenhead, England

Ankerwycke: the ancient yew (2), and priory ruins
Ankerwycke: the ancient yew (2), and priory ruins
I came to this spot in search of this ancient tree, but can't help thinking that in other circumstances I might have walked past without noticing it - the great bole (trunk) of the tree is hidden by branches which sweep right down to the ground. The tree's age has recently been estimated to be about two thousand years, though by what means this was arrived at I don't know. For a closer look at the trunk (bole) of the tree, see: Link

Toward the right-hand margin of the picture you get a glimpse of the ruins of the priory which once stood nearby.
