The scary tree of Perlethorpe

For the last few weeks I’ve been walking past this tree in the village of Perlethorpe on the Thoresby Estate.  It brings back memories of the movie Poltergeist, where the gnarled old tree in the yard comes to life, it’s branches smash through a window and it drags the family’s youngest daughter away into another dimension.

I’m not getting too close to this one, just in case!
