One of the amazing ancient oaks in Bradgate Park, many of the main trunks are hollow. Bradgate House is located in the Park it was built about 1500 for the 'Grey' family the best known member being Lady Jane Grey often referred to as The Nine Day Queen on July 10 1553 she was crowned Queen being deposed 9 days later on February 12 1554 she was beheaded she was 16 years old. The story is that the woodsmen beheaded the oaks in sympathy but there is no proof it happened, the trees were probably pollarded for woodland management
