Clarken Coombe can be rather bleak in the winter months with the old trees starkly visible at this time of year. Add a little sun (and snow if you are lucky) and its hugely worth a visit.
Above a massive stump with 8 major limbs visible from this angle. The photo was taken from the inside the deer park at the top of the footpath close to the timberland trail.
To the left little more than a hollow shell of a tree now but likely to support a huge variety of wildlife.
Oaks inside the fallow deer park from the lower footpath.
All the photos on this page are from an early morning visit on the 3rd Feb 2009 at about 8:30-9:00am.
