In the words of the brilliant natural history writer Robert Macfarlane:
“Holloway - an ancient sunken path, harrowed down into landscape by centuries of rainfall, wheel-run, hoof-hit & foot-fret. Where trees reach & clasp over a holloway, it feels more ghostly green time-slip tunnel than an open path.”
Macfarlane is so right about the time-slip nature of such paths.
Part of the fact they’re so old, and so enclosed, quieter than the fields around.
They’re like a magical, sinuous grotto, stretching both ways into the past.
Photographed at an old farm, in deepest Pembrokeshire, Wales.
