the Lord’s Trei (thu-l¯ordz-tr¯ı) n. former tree near the western side of the road shortly before coming to the Caa Knowe. Its position is indicated by a raised area in the field. This is probably an ancient burial cairn (about 33 ft in diameter) with an enclosure around it. It may be related to the Caa Knowe cairn, which is nearby. The date that the tree grew in the centre is not known, but it was already an old tradition by the mid-19th century.
