Oaks in Ladies Spring Wood

Photogenic oak trees recorded on a walk through a mist-cloaked Ladies Spring Wood, Sheffield.  Some of these trees bear the signs of having been coppiced many decades ago, typically the ones that branch lower down the trunk.  This ancient woodland all but adjoins Ecclesall Woods, divided only by the River Sheaf and the road that runs along the valley bottom.  Photos © Fran Halsall.
