Notes:

The high part of the south-west consists of a vast hill of chalkk rising three hundred feet above the village, and is divided into a sheep-down, the high wood and a long hanging wood, called The Hanger. The covert of this eminence is altogether beech, the most lovely of all forest trees, whether we consider its smooth rind or bark, its glossy foliage, or graceful pendulous boughs.” (p. 3)

A note reads as follows:

“A noticeable feature about the beech is the peculiar absence of underwood beneath it. Thus the stem [trunk] is seen in its full beauty. The decaying beech-mast and leaves lying upon the ground are apparently inimical to other vegetable life.” (p. 6)
