A wonderful avenue of massive old beech trees incongruously line a country lane like sentinels. They are painted a coppery gold by the rising sun early one winter's morning. It has been said that the avenue was created as the Devon banks or farmland hedge boundaries were allowed to grow unchecked following the shortage of manpower after the First World War. If so, perhaps they are a fitting living memorial to those that went and fought for freedom but never returned.
