This was taken as I stood underneath the oldest Yew tree in Europe.
A tiny village in Wales is believed to be home to Britain’s oldest tree – a yew that first took took root more than 5,000 years ago. Yes.. I will repeat that… 5000 years old!!
The majestic yew that lives in in a Welsh churchyard was 3,000 years old when Jesus Christ was born, according to tree ageing experts.
Experts have run tests on the tree in the St Cynog’s churchyard at Defynnog near Sennybridge, Powys, including DNA and ring-dating.
