The Old Chestnut Tree Was Gone

On my way home from work this morning I saw that the old Chestnut Tree that stood out front of the Trinity Anglican Church (and had survived when the church burnt down) was gone. In its spot was a bare patch of ground, and some wood chippings. As childern we used to love that tree. When the green pods would split, they were like eyelids opening.

The old Chestnut Tree had survived the burning down of the church (1843) by an arson. They rebuilt the tower, and the facade beneath the tower to look exactly like the originals.
