Bradgate Park. Leicestershire.

29th December 2007

Bradgate Park is a country park that I visited a few years ago.

My memory of the place was full of wind, rain and some twisty knarly oak trees clinging to the rocks.

On this trip we saw deer, wildfowl and a lot of people.

Fortunately this old oak tree was oblivious to it all, just getting on with what it’s been doing for many of our short generations.

I don’t know how old it is, probably much older than it’s girth would suggest. On it’s rocky perch it has limited it’s own development much like a bonsai tree in a shallow dish.

It would be a fascinating tree to photograph in all the seasons but sadly for me it’s just too far from home.
