I don’t think I linked last year to the sad news of the impending demise of the original Bramley apple tree. I did link a year before to the news that the pie filling made from said apple was being protected by the EU. And I’ll link now to an article about what Brexit may mean for British apple growers. But all merely by way of introduction to this stunning 3D scan of that fading mother tree in Southwell.
