Although the weather is turning colder, that’s no reason not to be out and about in the great outdoors! Wrap up warm in aran sweaters from shamrock gift and head out to the woods to see the beauty of the trees at this time of the year.
In the UK we have many famous trees – if you want to visit any of them on your walks here are just a few of them…
Sycamore Gap – This handsome tree is the most photographed tree in the country – it sits alone in a dip in the path alongside Hadrian’s wall in Northumberland. It makes a striking image and is also referred to as the Robin Hood Tree since it appeared in the film Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves.
The Horror Tree – The grounds of an elderly care home unwittingly became a bit of a tourist attraction as people came to see the strange-looking tree on the grounds of Stowlangtoft Hall. The reason for the interest is that the tree appears to have a face that is screaming – wide eyes and a huge gaping mouth with teeth, this could be straight out of a fairy tale.
The Queen Elizabeth Oak – On the grounds of Hatfield House where Elizabeth I once stayed is this ancient oak. It is famous as it is reportedly the tree that the queen sat under, whilst she awaited the news of the death of her sister Mary, meaning that it was Elizabeth who became the Queen of England.
