SO6411 : Beech trees on rocky outcrop, Forest of Dean

near to Ruspidge, Gloucestershire, Great Britain

Beech trees on rocky outcrop, Forest of Dean
Beech trees on rocky outcrop, Forest of Dean
The beech trees here are still surviving on the very edge of this part of the Forest. The 'glade' is where the old Eastern United Colliery spoil tip was created. Within yards of where the photograph was taken the ground takes on the air of an industrial lunar landscape of bare conical piles of spoil with deep erosion scars. This was caused by the removal of all stones that were larger than a ping pong ball from the heaps - for making roads.
