This is one of the original Bramley apple trees from the orchard on Goose Hill. It is about 90 years old. The trunk and several limbs are completely hollow. Old pruning debris provides valuable habitat at the base. 'Water shoots' can be seen sprouting up from the main branches; usually removed every winter, these have been unpruned for around 6 years.
