This wonderful ash may once have been part of a hedge along the side of the holloway, or sunken road. The tree has grown significantly out of the hedge line, and one of its boughs stretches across the path, such that walkers must duck under it to procede. Under the ash’s thick-set, high-stepping roots, and along the bank, the ground has been hollowed by erosion. The chalk and the soil have been washed away, leaving nodules of blue-tinged flint showing.
