Cardlemere Lane Trees #3 (NC 310)
Cardlemere Lane, near Biggin by Hartington, is a little used track that eventually leads near to the ancient ‘Minninglow’ hill. There are numerous tree plantations such as these that were sometimes planted over areas of ground that were hazardous due to mining and quarrying activities in the limestone region of the Peak District. Some tree ‘clumps’ are perhaps the remnants of the ancient forest that covered the whole of the UK in ancient times before humans cleared areas of land to keep livestock or grow crops. I love to draw and paint the native trees of Britain in their winter state.
