Sad to see this larch down along the riverside path, myself and Mrs Gurnmeister had a tradition of walking either side of it when it used to be in the centre of the path.

Gurnite riverside walkers new and old will be familiar with this larch just up past the playing field on the right bank of the river. Now sadly down after Storm Arwen. It used to stand in the middle of the path but the path was realigned a good view years ago. I remember there was a plan by officials to fell it a good 20 or 30 years plus ago? The late Chrissie Ellen in her role as Councillor put in a plea for it though I believe - she was a great campaigner for the Riverside and its wildlife in her own indomitable way.
