Ten years ago today I created the 26th post for Greenford 365. To mark the blog’s anniversary I will attempt to post a photo every day throughout 2022.
Ten years ago I photographed an oak tree left to grow into a natural shape where it stood near Horsenden Hill. This giant is maintained carefully and protected by a Tree Preservation Order (TPO/2008/0029). It must be around a hundred years old, a quiet witness to the changes in the landscape around it, the demolition of the Oldfield Farm buildings across the road from it and, more recently, the building of William Perkin School a little further away, surrounding farm land gradually covered with thousands of homes.
