Tyrrel’s Wood

Tyrrel's Wood

Spring … in Tyrrel’s Wood: 23 March 2019

Tyrrel’s Wood has been a managed woodland since at least 1251, though the present extent has later plantation additions. Here I’m walking along the ancient wood-bank … and thus I claim it for the #2019picoftheweek challenge title: ( just) Into the Woods

      I thank you, Maria. People have odd ideas about ancient woodland; that there they’ll encounter mega-girthed trees. But woodland remained woodland because it was profitable. Trees were felled for timber while still of a size to be easily cut. But mostly it was ‘poles’ that were taken. Poles are versatile, can be used for chairs, table, spoons, handles, you name it. And so in an ancient woodland you find loads of boles with multiple trunks springing from them. As here.
      Tyrrels Wood was used mainly for hornbeam and holly, though birch spring up in abundance whenever the canopy is opened.
      It is, indeed, a magical place, as much for its history as for its fungi and flora.
