Remains of ancient pine forest in peat at Great Cocklake
Remains of ancient pine forest in peat at Great Cocklake
Pine tree detritus washed out from the peat. It is remains of the great wild-wood that covered much of Britain after the ice Ages. In the high Pennines the woodland was destroyed about 7500 years ago by blanket bog formed when the climate became wetter. Pollen analysis has shown that pine was particularly common in Upper Teesdale probably to a height of 700m.
