Laund Oak - Bolton Abbey


The Laund oak, here bending rainbows out of sunlight, is an 800 year old oak, one of the oldest trees in Yorkshire. I was last here 4 years ago, and the oak has lost some of it's north side since then, but it's weird and wyrdful beauty still stands intact. 



O never harm the dreaming world, 
the world of green, the world of leaves, 
but let its million palms unfold 
the adoration of the trees.

    1. Oh really? Did it get blown over? It was still alive six months ago, producing acorns too.
