Tolpuddle Tree Engraved Wooden Pendant
When the National Trust coppiced the great Tolpuddle Martyrs’ sycamore tree recently we got some of the wood. The Museum has commissioned craftsman Sean Carter of Aberfanturning to produce a limited number of handmade items made from this special timber. The 330-year-old Martyrs’ Tree, believed to be the oldest Sycamore in Britain and maybe the world, is only coppiced like this four or five times every 100 years. This was a rare opportunity to make something beutiful from this important tree. These are wonderful and meaningful things to own or would make a gift. The pendants are on a natural waxed leather thong.
