    Polegate windmill, built 1817, the oldest thing in town. Taken from the tree, in sniping posture, max zoom.

    Impressive. What kind of tree is it?

    That is indeed a fine tree. And I like that the roof of the petrol station looks like it has caught in the vanes of the windmill.

    It is a yew tree. A well-known local landmark, only about 20 feet tall, but it can be seen from miles away. No idea how it got there, hilltops are not their usual habitat.

    Yes, it does look that way Pete!
