Four Shire Stone Oak
This great Oak tree was over 200 years old when felled at Great Wolford, Glos at the roadside of the A44 having been damaged in a storm in 2011. It grew within sight of the Four Shire Stone - an ancient boundary point that marks the meeting point of the great shires of Mercia: Gloucester, Warwick, Oxford and Worcester. It was a legendary meeting place visited in 1905 by one young schoolboy named John Tolkein who would later immortalise it as the Three Farthing Stone of Middle Earth in his now famous triology "The Lord of the Rings2.
