Thank you for your advice and help on here with my recent tree challeges. I even had a tweet from Christine Walkden the BBC One Show's resident gardening expert. She said it wasn't good either. So, as a result of all this information, we had to ask the tree surgeon and he confirmed what everyone had said. This was the end result and it had started to rot through the middle! He did count the rings though and said it was about 25 years old. It was actually quite interesting!
On the up side, the garden looks so much bigger.
