NotesByes Lane is an old road/track bounded by Devon hedge banks with regular standard trees, usually Oaks, and the age of the oldest trees shows something about the age of the bank.  With a girth of over 4m this tree is well over two hundred years old, possibly much older because it was pollarded (cut off at head height) at some time and this slows the growth of the trunk.  Further south, tree 1005 on the bank beside Gilchrist's Field is possibly 400 years old.
