Winter Jewels in Ruby Wood

Winter Jewels in Ruby Wood

Tissington Trail

Ruby Wood near Hartington Station on the Tissington Trail was planted by the Peak District National Park in 1991 to celebrate the Ruby Anniversary of the park’s inception.

With its variety of native tree/shrub species including Lime, Rowan, Ash, Guelder Rose and Hawthorne, it provides a habitat for wildlife throughout the year.

Winter Jewels in Ruby Wood was my entry for the Longcliffe Prize at Bonsal Arts Trail 2022. Referencing environmental reclamation through the PDNP’s Small Woodland Creation Scheme – establishing new woodlands, often by reclaiming former rubbish tips or quarry sites.
