'Old Knobbley grows in an area of woodland on Furze Hills in Mistley. It is thought that he could be as much as 800 years old, but it is very difficult to tell. When a tree reaches that kind of age growth slows down considerably, to the point that time seems to stand still. He is however recognised as the oldest oak tree in England.

Old Knobbley was most definitely pollarded in it's youth. It has been ravaged by fire and at one point had a hornets nest amongst its boughs.'

V2 shows my children in front of the tree, to give an idea of how big he is GrinGrin. He even has his own website:
