Potterland Pines (Screel on left)
These Scots Pines were in place when the Forestry Commission took possession of Potterland Wood, (in the 1950s?) and have been left standing after clear felling the later stands of Corsican Pine and Sitka Spruce.

Potterland Wood has been woodland since the earliest maps,LinkExternal link (Archive LinkExternal link ) and the Forestry Commission intend to manage a return to a more natural forest. The hilltop is to be largely left as "managed open space"
