This oak appears to be an old boundary tree, marking the civil parish boundary between Checkendon and Ipsden.
It stands at roughly 20 metres tall and is about 250 years old. Growing in a small depression on the edge of a wood known as "The Covert" it is strongly buttressed with two huge side branches.
The tree is 5 metres from the stile where the public footpath enters the woodland from the field.
