Rotten timber, old and new

Rotting wood, Hall's Croft, Stratford on Avon

Rotten timber in wood old and new. The first picture is of part of a window frame in Hall’s Croft (aka Shakespeare’s daughter’s house) in Stratford on Avon. If the wood is original it will have been felled over four hundred years ago. The other pictures are of a tree by the Railway Walk at Newbridge, snapped in this winter’s gales after being weakened by the fungal infection which caused its rot.
