This happened a few weeks ago in the Garrison gardens in Brompton. A very large branch of a tree which must have weighed at least a couple of tons came down in high winds and fell right across the path. Thankfully it appears to have happened in the early hours and no one was walking past at the time.

This is the tree after being cut back - you can see the scar left by the branch which looks like it was pretty rotten where it joined the trunk. For scale, the main trunk is about four feet across.



The scene during the process of clearing up.



This what it did to the metal fence of the tennis court

I was hoping that a member of the `old` Forum (SentinelS4) might see this photo and join the new Forum) ...


I shall drop S4 a text and let him know that we are now all over here. He had been busy with decorating as I understand... and having a haircut.

Yes I do remember where I took this, Smiffy.


The southern end of Ruins Barn Road, Sittingbourne, facing north and not far from the Science Park (formerly Shell Research).


I was hoping that a member of the `old` Forum (SentinelS4) might see this photo and join the new Forum) as he certainly would have known this area very well, as I believe he once lived close by.


Quite a few have their email addresses on their old KHF profiles. Maybe worth a try for those who have some sort of connection with other members on there?

I suspect that many members gave up on the old forum and may not yet be aware of this new one.

That's a really nice pic Diapason, can you remember where it was taken?

Good idea Smiffy. Let's use this thread for people to post pictures they've taken themselves while out and about in our county.

There was a popular thread in general chat on the old site called "Nature at its Best - post your pics" where members could upload photographs they had taken while out and about in Kent. I believe something here could fulfil the same function so I've started this topic. I think it might be better if it wasn't confined just to nature but could include anything of note you may have spotted and that you feel might be of interest to others.


This is just a quick update on a picture I posted on the old forum last year called "Some trees simply refuse to die" Unfortunately, it reckoned without someone coming along wielding a chainsaw. Time will tell if this will finally finish it off.
