The Hardy Tree

In the churchyard of St Pancras Old Church is the mysterious Hardy Tree. A proud ash tree with over a hundred gravestones studded into its roots.
The story goes that the poet Thomas Hardy was its creator, while he was a young architects assistant helping the Midland Railway company. But that’s only a story. No one can say what the true origin or import of this tree is, could it be a truly mystic tree?
