The two trees in the picture are on a triangular shaped piece of ground in front of Mopin Lodge, there are actually three trees there and the one on the right of the picture is smaller than the other two trees, because it was planted in 1986 after I demolished the original tree in that location with a Vauxhall Cavalier, due to the road being icy one night, after colliding with the tree, which snapped off, the car hit the hedge on the left of the picture sideways, the hedge was undamaged and the police said that I was lucky that the car had hit the hedge, because the hedge had cushioned the impact and saved me from serious injury!

I remember the place, my dad lived in there a long time ago when he was the chef at the old restaurant
