Superb light and colour Roger, a wonderful tree in it's time, I wonder what happened here. I could imagine the root system of this tree is the same as the upper branches.

The root are an interesting thought Maurice many thanks.
Found this in answer to what happened,
Cedar can be affected by Sirococcus blight of cedar. It’s a serious disease caused by the fungus Sirococcus tsugae. It was first found in England in 2013 and has since been confirmed in Wales and Scotland.
