Horse Chestnut R.I.P.

It is with great sadness to report that the Horse Chestnut Tree in the Mansion Circle entrance fell over this past week. Combine 80 years, branches full of leaves and full grown chestnuts, add weight from rainwater and wind from the east against a mostly rotted trunk and you unfortunately get a tree on the ground. Several local craftsman gathered up the wood for future bowls and musical instruments!
