Remains of the Patcham Elms

I realise now that I should have saved my earlier title, "The Last of the Elms" for this photograph. Or, even a later one if I manage to record the planned chipping operation to remove what is left of the trunk and the roots.

The nearest, slightly largest, trunk is 5 ft. across at its widest point and must average at least 4 ft. in diameter.


  1. Was there a final word on how old they actually were?

  2. Did anyone count the rings I wonder? I will enquire.
