Large mulberry, producing fruit, in the garden of the NHS Ladywell House. The House was formerly a Vicarage, rebuilt in 1692 on the site of an older Vicarage. There is a stone arch and part of a stone wall which may have belonged to the old building. The mulberry, given its size and prominent position in the lawn, quite probably dates from this time. The Vicarage was extended in the late 1800s and is another possible date for the planting, but the tree looks older and could be late 17th century.
