A very close shave

At 4am this morning and with no warning the sweet chestnut on the drive lost a large bough. It had been providing shade to a lead ornament which was moved to Sennicotts from Aldwick Place near Bognor Regis.

In every way the bough appeared healthy but the weight of its foliage obviously became too much and it came crashing down. What we are so thankful for is the way in which it fell. With the exception of a small dent to the lead work it fell in what appears the only possible way to avoid crushing the ornament. The pictures tell the whole story…

… it doesn’t get closer than that! The question is who to thank?
