:lol::lol::happy:
Would make a great feature....with moss on it!;)
Its quite a amazing trunk.....used to walk past it when I was a kid going to school.
Haven't a clue how old it is though....millions of years I guess!

Hi Darrel:thumbup:
That old amazing!
Could be similar age although those petrified trees at the "Fossil Grove" are a extinct species!
This just looks like a regular tree trunk...it does have actual bark definition but its not picked up on this photograph!
I heard there where others in the area but they where removed for some reason!
Cheers

Haha...OK, now I look at again it I can see it's pretty bigo_O:rolleyes:. But if it was made of brass it'd been long gone and melted down, as happened to a few park sculptures around were I used to live in Essex:(
One of them was huge and mounted on a 20ft plinth but it still disappeared one night, never to be seen again!:eek:
