Towards the end of the Caribbean Pilgrimage yesterday those near the pond could have heard a loud cracking noise followed by a massive rustling of leaves as a large branch form one of the trees on the bank of the pond fell down.  The Black Poplar trees apparently have a danger, after any period of drought which weakens the branch joints, of losing those branches.  Steve Hayden, the Estates Manager, estimated that it may be as much as two tons of wood which fell yesterday.  Luckily no one was near the tree and now it just remains to move and saw up the branch and see if any damage has been done to the pond bank.  All part of the exciting life or Aylesford Priory
