St. Mary’s Church / Somerton
This tree is sometimes called ‘The Witch’s Finger.’ Looking at it, it’s not hard to see why. It’s straight and has few branches, and with a bit of imagination it could easily be a giant finger pointing out of the earth. But according to legend, the oak tree isn’t a finger at all. Instead, it’s a leg. Centuries ago, when St. Mary’s was still in use, it is said that a witch with a wooden leg was caught and buried alive in the church’s foundations. From her wooden leg, the oak tree grew and ruined the church, coaxed by her vengeful spirit.
