I received an email from my step daughter in Australia this afternoon and she mentioned that they have just watched a programme called My Passion for Trees by Dame Judi Dench. She commented on what a good programme it is so I googled it and came across a short video on the Crowhurst Yew. It was fascinating but I was surprised to see it as I grew up just three miles from this tree and had never heard of it. In Lingfield we had a large oak tree that was hollow inside but I had no idea that just outside the village was this magnificient specimen of Yew.
This is the link.
and this is the tree
I do hope the programme is shown in New Zealand
