Trevaylor is a small wood near Penzance in Cornwall. About 500 metres wide and 2 km long, it consists mainly of beech trees. A small stream runs down its length. It is visited by locals walking their dogs, playing with their children, and experiencing its beauty and peace. It has not been managed or tended for years, so it feels very natural. As the years pass, the many fallen trees are slowly consumed by undergrowth, fungi, and rot. Creature-like spirits gaze out of tree trunks.
