Looking its age.

Near to the Clock Tower at Dunham Massey House and Park in Cheshire stands a 500-year-old Oak tree, or what remains of it anyway. I suppose it’s entitled to show its age as it was a youngster when Henry VIII ordered the dissolution of the monasteries. It was a fine specimen when Guy Fawkes et al conspired to blow up the Houses of Parliament along with King James VI and I.
