The Fallen Tree

may27iv

This tree shattered, and fell towards the bridge. A couple of years ago there was a swing hanging from a main branch (children often play down by the River Leet here, leaving signs of their occupation, at the moment there are the ashes of a fire). I think the swinging with the weight of a child must have weakened the tree. From the broken branches leaves are still sprouting. Elsewhere, a chaos of tree. Somewhere I have a photograph of that swing, before the tree tumbled.
