Yup, right one. I have many more lovely autumn tree pics taken in the old part of Aldridge so I'll do a blog soon which I hope won't be too boring. I also have others showing the whole magnificent yew and its mate. I wonder how old they are:-)

Thanks all, I don't know how old the tree is, but the first entry in the parish register is dated 1660. The other yews trunk is just as wonderful Morgana. The churchyard is lovely, as is the church... uh oh another blog coming on:-)
