Hello and welcome to this corner of the internet. If you've taken the trouble to find me I hope you enjoy your visit!
Well one has got to start somewhere so why not with a trip to Wentwood in South Wales to visit the Curley Oak.
This was an accidental find - just came across it whilst wandering ( fairly aimlessly it must be said) through the the woodland. The tree certainly stands out amongst the pines - a venerable old oak that is completely hollow yet still manages to cling to the vestiges of life.
A bit of quick googling turned up some statistics but no estimate of how old this tree might be. I guess I need to look that little bit harder.
