This ancient woodland on Dartmoor in the very south west of England is magical & mystical. Over centuries it has stood and has been much written about. Baxter has captured the essence of the place and draws ones eye deep into this dwarf oak forest.
“Scarce hoarier seems the ancient Wood Whose shivered trunks of age declare What scath of tempests they have stood In the rock’s crevice rooted there; Yet still young foliage, fresh and fair, Springs forth each mossy bough to dress, And bid e’en Dartmoor’s valleys share A Forest-wilderness“. Sophie Dixon -1829.
