A walk in the woods

Borthwood Copse

Tom and I recently discovered Borthwood Copse, the remnants of an ancient woodland that covered most of the East of the Wight.  Step a few feet in and you’re soon lost in the hundred hidden paths, big robin hood oaks and sense of its medieval past.  This discovery has been a long time coming, considering we’ve lived on the Island for five years.  We found it after mentioning our bluebell hunt to a true local, and this was his immediate suggestion.  We were too late for the bluebells this year, but did find some great climbing trees and a few local residents.
