Branch on ‘beautiful’ centuries-old tree on Fulbeck Manor grounds snaps off





A branch on a centuries-old tree has broken off as a result of the stormy weather.

The branch on one of the cedar trees in the grounds of Fulbeck Manor snapped off on Monday due to Storm Isha, which resulted in an amber weather warning across the county earlier in the week.

The tree is believed to have been on the grounds for several centuries and is greatly admired amongst those who work on or near the grounds.

“This is one of several cedars in the ground and we all love the way their magnificent branches splay out producing the distinctive horizontal canopy.”
