A FIVE CONKER CH­EST­NUT!

First News - - Front Page -

YOU might have seen lots of conkers about in the past few weeks, but have you spot­ted any­thing like this?!

This su­per-sized horse ch­est­nut husk, con­tain­ing a whop­ping five conkers, has been found in Bush Hill Park in En­field.

The un­usual dis­cov­ery was made by Evie Ja­cobs, af­ter study­ing trees at her pri­mary school. She went on the hunt for a rare triple-conker husk but found some­thing even bet­ter!

Evie wrote to the Nat­u­ral His­tory Mu­seum about the husk and they replied, say­ing that her “find is in­deed a rar­ity.”

Evie is now ap­ply­ing for her gi­ant spec­i­men to be judged by Guin­ness World Records.
