The fall of the large beech tree

In August 2020 after some windy conditions, a large branch from a Beech tree in the Church yard fell across the footpath and the bottom of the steps for the footbridge going over the railway line. The branch was cleared away so that the footpath and bridge could be reopened. You can see how large the branch was from the large log pieces that can be seen in the photographs!

In March 2021 the tree was assessed and it was decided that the rest of the tree should be taken down which took place on 3rd March 2021.
