Strange facts-Trees of terror

These terrifying trees are unlikely to attract children keen on climbing them.

With their haunting frame and looming arms, they look like they have just leapt out of a set for the smash-hit movie Lord Of The Rings.

A spooky specimen, suspected to be an oak, was spotted by Charlotte Laurie on a quiet country lane at Boxted, near Colchester, Essex.

‘It’s a wonderful thing to look at. The head is down and the arms are stretched out, it’s a wonderfully old tree.

The Hammer Horrors tree, which sits on Sky Hall Hill, is not the only terrifying tower of timber in the area.
