Lonesome Tree

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

Superstitions were attached to these trees, in particular the 'lone' trees that provided a bridge between the spirit and mortal worlds. Great harm could befall anyone who meddled with them. Even today in parts of the Celtic world, most notably in Ireland, Scotland and England, trees are regarded with a mixture of awe and superstition. And there are people today who will refused to cut down or tamper with a lone tree for fear of angering 'the fairies'.

It's a strange looking tree Josh.Went for a close up look and did not realize I had dropped my mobile until I had come back to the road. Took me an hour to find it. Regards Jack
