Tuesday Treats: Wood Carving

A treat with a difference. In days gone by felled trees were used in a number of useful ways, most now replaced by plastics. So the timbers are left for Nature to dispose of. Meanwhile they provide homes for wildlife…and the material for would-be sculptors! On our walk of 7th November through East Hills Woods, Costessey, we saw so many wood carvings.

Wow! Look! Someone’s provided us with a place to sit. A shame it’s too early for lunch

A close up… oops, the dragon seems to be munching on a hapless knight!

This one looks like a snake, and yet it has legs. A lizard, then?

Looks like this one’s coming out of the ground. Is it a burrowing dragon?

The last of the dragons, they’ve met their end at the end of the woods

I’ve featured this before, but it has to be included. Child-sized table and chairs

And a whole array of wood-gnomes providing stools for child-sized botties!

Hope you enjoyed. It was a little different, and fascinating to see

    I love that your area has tree gnomes and elusive wood carving faeries! You can leave it a mystery or employ one of those wildlife cameras that snap a picture when something moves in front of it.

    These are great, we went down a small sideroad on our holiday and discovered wooden statutes of soldiers from that town who had perished. They were an amazing memorial
