Inside A Copper Beech Looking Out

The beech tree is in Much Wenlock’s Linden Field ~ the place where the modern Olympic Movement had its beginnings in 1850

And every July the Wenlock Olympian Games are still held on and around the Linden Field and at the adjacent William Penny Brookes School, which is fittingly named after the Games’ founder.

  1. And a bench for Jude! πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ I love standing beneath them and watching the sun shimmer through. There are a couple of big ones in the park I walk through to zumba. Didn’t have time to linger this morning so thank you for sharing.

  2. I love looking up or out from inside a tree, and love your photos. Are there different types of copper beech? I mean different grades of colour? Stevie lived in a rental house for a while which had a really dark mahogany beech which was gorgeous. I wouldn’t want in a garden because it was huge, but it was a very special tree!

    1. The tree I was under was a fairly young one and the leaves seemed on the pale side of copper to me. But then they had just puffed themselves up. There must be different species. I shall have to find out now πŸ™‚

  3. I once fell in love with a giant, ancient copper beech. I think it was on Martha’s Vineyard, but I could be mistaken. Sitting under the tree, I absolutely KNEW that all was right with the world. It was the biggest tree of that kind I’ve ever seen and it was in the middle of the Town Common. I hope it’s still there today.
