no previous part Part 1 of LONDON BURL series Part 2: LONDON BURL #2 »

This is where I go each day to walk my Dog “OZZIE” To breath relax chill out be inspired be amazed.
This is just 25 miles west of London and called BURNHAM BEECHES and as you will see some of our wonderful trees are 450 years old. Many are twisted knarly and have over the years been hit many times by lightning.
The woodland has been used many times by Film crews to film the likes of Harry Potter and Robin Hood Prince of Theives but to name a few. Open to the general public all year round and with free entry.
Here you will see a small collection of photos of Knarly Great oaks Beeches and Silver Birch nearly all alive and full of burls lumps bumps holes ect. I think a lot of people will like these trees and will no doubt dream what they could make with these amazing timbers. This is my first blog and not yet sure how much data it will allow but I have around 60 photos ready to upload , may show them in stages in a series.
May be you can add this destination to your shedule next time you do a London trip ! bazz135uk ! !
