Backwards. Away from the tree its resting on. If you don't have a winch, sever the bottom and get a pole and lever it back

Don’t fell the tree it’s hung in is he important bit! 
 

if you choke a sling around the trunk just above the cut(you haven't made yet) to winch from and other end on a sturdy tree.

A felling bar with a cant hook on can help to roll it.

Could try a letter box cut then shave away one side and see if you can roll it off the tree using a felling lever? (if its not stuck tight)

if not try the winch.

Too far from sussex, or I would have popped round and sorted it for beer tokens. Be careful with hung up trees they can throw out some surprises.

Possibly a stupid question, but then it's never stopped me.... 

 

... Choke a sling?

Choke a sling, loop it through itself around the tree. Don't fell the supporting tree, there is a fair chance the one it is supporting will land on you.
