Don't ask! All I know is that Ian suddenly got quite excited and pointed to the tree." Its an Ent" he exclaimed." What on earth is an Ent" says I. Well apparently you have had to have read or seen the film of The Lord of the Rings to know what it is all about. So now you know as much as me!!!
There is a bit more to this story. When Ian first pointed "The Ent" out to me, I didn't have my camera. As we were on our way to Market Harborough I said we would take a picture of it on the way back. Well imagine Ian's surprise when we couldn't find it at all. This convinced him even more that it was an Ent because these trees apparently move! It wasn't until we went back to Harborough a few weeks later that we found it again.
