Think about changes that this tree might have seen in the last 200 years….
Changes in food, clothes, jobs, travel, school, technology.
What have you seen change in Stanstead Abbotts?
What has changed in the wider country and the wider world?
Remember, if you have time you could talk to your parents or grandparents about the changes that they have seen in their lifetime.
