Wood Provenance

The Ridgeway Ash

This large 150 year old Ash tree was felled at Brazen Bottom Farm, near West Lavington in 2013 because it had fungal Die-Back. Like many other Ash trees that grow along the ancient Ridgeway it is a victim of the spread of the disease on the shoes of walkers. And so it ever was - the Black Death spread along the Ridgeway into southern England after 1347. Walkers have used it to get to Stonehenge and Avebury (3000 years ago), to reach the coast and on to trade in Oslo or North Africa (2000 years ago) or just to move their sheep and cattle to markets in medieval times. This Ash tree witnessed some of that and died because of it.
