On the top of the banks that line a sunken lane, not quite a hollow way, are ancient trees with strange shapes. They look as if they have once been part of a hedge which was cut and horizontally laid, but have long since been allowed to mature and re-grow vertical branches. The tree trunks are now deeply covered in moss that has created a place where ferns and orchids thrive. Another wonderful part of the Kingcombe Meadows Nature Reserve.
