Adrian.....I don't think they're Oak trees ?.......there's something 'different' about them, all the main trunks are
growing in a spiral fashion, & being in a very exposed position have suffered badly over the years, but they are
clearly VERY old trees, & full of 'character' !!!!.......I'll look into it a bit deeper & see what I can find out !!

Thanks for your interest...Keith
