Tortworth Chestnut

The famous Tortworth Chestnut, in Gloucestershire, was a landmark in the boundary records compiled in the reign of John, and was already known as the Great Chestnut of Tortworth in the days of Stephen. This is probably the most famous sweet chestnut in Britain. Because many of the branches of its huge twisted main trunk have rooted to become trees in their own right, it now looks like a small woodland.
