SO4871 : The Hope, Haye Park

taken 18 years ago, near to Batchcott, Shropshire, Great Britain

The Hope, Haye Park.
The Hope, Haye Park.
Forestry is a big industry in North Herefordshire. The photo shows Haye Park and the High Vinnalls, part of Bringewood Chase. On a limestone ridge, this former hunting forest is now given over to fast growing conifers. Once a deer park, somewhat like the Forest of Arden golf course or Bradgate Park. The old oaks were ringbarked and conifers planted, originally Norway Spruce, Western Hemlock and Japanese Larch. The second generation is coming on fast.
