So much of our British woodland has been ripped out over the centuries, to feed our burgeoning population.
What remains has been selectively managed by human hand - thus all ancient woodland in this entire sceptred isle is called ‘semi-natural’.
It can be difficult to find true wildness in our woodland.
But at dusk, when the light fades, and the human-made paths and tree stumps blur and blend into the gloom, then that ancient, magical connection to nature can once again pour through our minds and bodies.
Photographed at dusk in Oversley Woods, Warwickshire.
