An amazing ancient yew tree with a door. The 4000 year old Crowhurst Yew in Surrey, England. The room in the ancient tree, hollowed out around 1820, can house 14-15 people. It is said that when the locals were making the room they found a cannonball embedded in the trunk, thought to have been fired in The English Civil War (1642–1651)
