It’s an iconic landmark along Hadrian’s Wall. Sycamore Gap, or the ‘Robin Hood’ tree as it’s known locally after being in Robin Hood Prince of Thieves. 10 trees were chosen in England, seven in Wales and six in both Scotland and Northern Ireland. A public vote decided the winner, which will then compete against trees from across the Continent for the title of European Tree of the Year. It’s like the Eurovision song contest, but without the bad songs.
