Portrait of an ancient oak tree, so famous that it was sketched by J.M.W. Turner. Believed to pre-date the Norman Conquest, it was already on the decline when this view was taken, but it was only when it was hit by lightning in 1950 that it died. However acorns from it have been planted as far away as New Zealand.
