Some wild places have the power to captivate all who visit them, not because they have unrivalled views or superior scenery but because they instil in the visitor a sense of wonder and awe. This book is about one such place.
It’s ancient woodland is a landscape of fairytale qualities where vast oaks stand side by side with some of the tallest holly trees in Britain. Reminiscent of childhood stories, the wood is a chaotic tangle of twisted branches where light is sparse and evergreen curtains of holly hang in the air. Dead and decaying boughs and trunks litter the floor and even on the brightest of days the air is cool and the forest dark. For all who enter here mystery abounds and imagination runs wild.
Through a collection of 50 colour images and accompanying text the story of this woodland unfolds through the seasons across two years.

This book is a unique and beautiful work of art that documents a unique ancient landscape remaining on our doorstep. The photography is brilliantly executed and composed. The book documents the facets of this landscape throughout the year and discusses without sentiment its fragile, changing and possibly transitory nature. It’s a privilege to glimpse through this photographer’s lense.
