Beacon Hill Woods

One of my favourite woods – beautiful every autumn and full of ancient and recent history.  It also has a website maintained by a good friend of mine so we need to support it.

Over the years I have watched this pile of logs gradually degrade back to nature.

The wood is well known for its fungi.  However, I had not expected to see the results of someones fungal foray displayed on a tree stump.  Quite a collection!

And Finally…

It appears early in the week a group of witches celebrated the life of a shrew at the wood’s standing stone.  A suitable spot for our woodland creature – hope it had a good life (but probably short life) in the woods.
