The Granny Tree, Balcombe Lane, Handcross

About 100 yards from Gravelpit Corner along the Balcombe Lane there stood a misshapen beech tree with an enormous girth. It may have been the only tree in the area with its own personal name, for it was known by local residents as the “Granny Tree”.
Alas, the Great Storm of 1987 brought the tree down.
There are no prizes for correctly guessing who owns the motorcar parked on the side of the road!
Further details can be found with picture #656.
