Above and below-Near Glastonbury there was once a ceremonial avenue of oaks that led up to The Tor-the hill that dominates the town. In the early part of the twentieth century a farmer cut down what was left leaving only these two giant oaks Gog and Magog. Below –The Tor. Around it a processional track runs.
Above– On the bleak wastes of Dartmoor is Wistmans Wood a small forest of dwarf oaks and among them many lichen covered stones. A left over from when the area was covered in forest. It was quite an strange place and one could easily imagine faeries among the upturned stones. Some say one of the most haunted places on Dartmoor. The name of Wistman’s Wood may derive from the dialect word ‘wisht’ meaning ‘eerie/uncanny’,or ‘pixie-led/haunted’.
Below– Near Dolwilym in mid Wales. The Lair Of The Grehound Bitch. This site like many is far of the beaten path.
The ones too near the beaten path get damaged or have long disappeared.
Below– Near Stonehenge on Salisbury Plain is the giant Avebury henge.
Below-Set in a magnificent setting is Castlerigg Stone Circle near Keswick in the Lake District of Cumbria.
Below- In the village of Much Marcle is this ancient yew tree within which one can sit and contemplate for whom the bell tolls.
