HIKING TO THE OLDEST, BIGGEST, ANCIENT OAK TREE IN MIDDLESEX

Possibly from the era of Henry VIII, this ancient oak tree stands tall and very wide imposing over its surroundings. However before reaching “The Master”, this is what the tree has been called, I take you on an amazing nature trail hike followed by a tour of the Summerhouse Lake deep in the woods. Stanmore has more to offer than you might think!
