On December 30th 2006 a tornado ripped through the village uprooting trees and completely shearing the tops from many ancient beeches (those that were not blown down in the great storm of 1986). Dummer Down Lane, leading from Seven Sisters to Dummer Down House was the most dramatically affected. Photos are a bit dark but I have done my best to show what happened.
