Wistman's Wood

image credit: Brian Ralphs

Wistman's Wood is a small, remote, ancient woodland area on Dartmoor in England, on the slopes of the West Dart River. Covering just eight acres in area, this isolated woodland is the remnant of an ancient woodland which once covered the moor thousands of years ago.

The trees here are very old and badly stunted, possibly due to a combination of the altitude and the poor soil, with their branches twisted and knotted into fantastical shapes.
