Here is a site devoted to the Major Oak of Sherwood Forest:

http://www.eyemead.com/majoroak.htm

It includes some wonderful photos of the tree which "was an acorn 800 years ago". It is also knowns as the most famous tree in England. And it still stands today.

In "Sherwood Forest" it is known as the Great Oak, and is the site of many scenes, both light and dark. Isn't it beautiful? Just wanted to share.

Cheers! :achug:

Thanks for sharing that link! I love big old trees. The Major Oak is definitely one to respect.

The Major Oak is such a majestic and very huge and pretty tree when i was a small child living in Nottingham I rememeber being able to actually go inside this magnificent tree and there was space for so many more people to fit inside but over the years the tree has had to be supported by many a strong wooden pole now they have been replaced by steel girders and the tree is fenced off to the public....But it is still an awesome sight to see and is the back drop for the annual Robin Hood festival that is held every year in the forest see the pic :)
