The Willow CarrMay 27th, 2016
Carr: A carr is a type of waterlogged wooded terrain that, typically, represents a succession stage between the original reedy swamp and the eventual formation of forest in a sub-maritime climate.
Here referring to the small stand of mostly willow trees in the southern marsh adjacent the river. There were a few large oak trees but most have fallen and the river has eroded some quarter of an acre or more.
This image is from summer 2015 with the west, north and eastern boundaries of the copse outlined in yellow. The small break in the north is the approximate place commonly entered.
The green dots are the locations of the two swamp cypresses,
the orange that of the dawn redwood.
