Pagan Eye: Tree Viewed from King Henry’s Mound

This autumnal tree was photographed from King Henry’s Mound in Richmond Park by Lee Edwards, who shares my love of . The mound is actually a Bronze Age burial chamber, but legend has it that King Henry used it as a viewing point when out hunting. 

The view, framed by trees, is now protected. If you stand on the topyou can see eastwards as far as London's St Paul's Cathedral, and westwards over the Thames Valley. You can find out more on the Royal Parks website

I've been trying to identify the type of tree in the photo and from the shape of the leaves I think it might be a hornbeam, but I'm not entirely sure. If anyone else knows, do leave a comment.

On each Pagan Eye post, I show a photo that I find interesting, with a few words about it. I'm not quite sure what I'll be including - it could be a seasonal image, a pagan site, an event, or just a pretty picture.

If you want to send me a photo for a Pagan Eye post, please email it to Let me know what the photo shows and whether you want your name mentioned or not. For copyright reasons, the photo must be one you have taken yourself and you must confirm that you are submitting it for A Bad Witch's Blog.
