Skeletal Trees

By Steve012345
There is a stand of about 30 of these trees behind the disused church in Mundon, near Maldon in Essex. The trees died centuries ago when the sea rose over the low-lying land and poisoned the roots. It is said that they are mentioned in the Domesday Book. They are frequently described as "petrified" but, since this would mean that they were fossilised, it is a misnomer as they are still very much the original oak timber.
