Beech trees at Badbury Rings.


The beech tree avenue near Badbury Rings and Kingston Lacy is often photographed for its beauty. Originally planted as a birthday gift around 180 years ago, there were 365 trees on one side of the road and 366 trees on the other side, for a leap year.

I wanted to do something a bit different when I arrived on a warm July evening in 2014. So, instead of heading to the road running through the trees, I went behind them. It was there that I found a different kind of avenue, one that was created by the tree’s mighty branches. The sunlight flooded through the leaves, creating a rich tapestry of yellows and golds and the tree trunks glowed resplendent.
