  1. Roy

    Trees grow old and fall over
    Think it may be on Bostall Hill not Bostall Manorway

    • Oldfort

      The woods decay, the woods decay and fall,
      The vapours weep their burthen to the ground,
      Man comes and tills the field and lies beneath,
      And after many a summer dies the swan.

  2. Funny enough I emailed the council about a year ago and said there were a few trees on Bostall hill that looked like they needed trimming back as they were overhanging the road by quite a long way ……..
