The film recounts how there’s been a hawthorn tree at this exact place for well over a thousand years as the nearby farm is recorded in the Doomsday Book as Thorn Farm. Indeed legend has it that if the thorn tree flourishes then the village will flourish but if it dies then it must be replanted so that no harm will befall the villagers.
This is one of a series of films highlighting the interesting stories surrounding famous old trees in the beautiful East Devon countryside. The films are available on DVD for showing at community centres.
