 :D Don't think it did Flynn, but who knows!  >104< We thought we'd found it on one of our members meet ups at the farm and Jane Royston tried to find out later for definite but she didn't have any luck. So I guess we'll never know.

A bit about it Here at the bottom of the page :)

When I visited after filming had finished and the farm was once again derelict the tree was still standing. This would be about either August 73 or 74. I still have bark from it.
Will you come back.?
