This New Forest tree sits on a road bend at the top of a dip and has little else around it. It has pride of place at one of the highest points in the New Forest and you can view it almost in isolation on a full 360 panoramic. Many days I have watched the sunrise and sunset behind this tree, it’s just a matter of direction.
Apparently the area gets its name from the fact it was used as a mass grave during the second world war… I don’t know if this is true or not, just picked it up from a partial accademic paper on the net!New Forest, Dead Man’s Hill, Sunrise, Photograph, Roger Penny Way, Fordingbridge. B3078
