I only have one set of reading glasses on the go at a time ... when I can't find them they are usually to be found on the top of my head.    .. just in case of catastrophe there's a spare pair in the bedroom bookcase.

We were probably both there at the same time Dyers End   I knew quite a few of the people involved as family farmed in Suffolk and I was a YFC member ... I did ride, but not brave enough to P2P - nearly every time I fell off I broke something   Uncle had hunters and chasers  and rode with the Whaddon Chase and cousin became a trainer ... almost won the Grand National ......

I would coppice it ... cutting both trunks right down to the ground ... info here
