The remains of a fallen tree
When we moved to Lenton in 1980, there was a huge log where this 'bush' is. The kids loved it. All the bark had long gone and parts of it were hollow. About ten years ago, it was removed because it was considered dangerous and how we all missed that log, but something must have been left behind and this large bush has grown in its place. The 1901 Ordnance Survey map of the area marks a lone tree on this spot. Since writing this, my wife, Susan, has reminded me that the log was removed after wasps built a nest inside it.
