Hollow Beech, The Vale

Possibly the favourite tree on Hampstead Heath. Polished smooth inside by generations of locals who have climbed inside it – the record is said to be 15!!  It lost a third of its canopy in the Big Storm of  of 1987, including the central leader from about 40 feet, and some fool even set a fire in it some years ago. But on it soldiers: another wonder of nature.
