Pedams Oak

I am interested in stories about trees, and I was told that on Muggleswick Moor many years ago, there was a horse thief named Pedam who managed to hide inside a huge oak tree and avoided capture by the authorities. A good excuse to explore the moors. I found Pedams Wood which I probably wasn’t supposed to go into, and on my wanderings came across this derelict farmhouse and this interesting tree. So I made a woodcut of this tree.

Each time I print it I like to make it a bit different. Prints are available in my etsy shop.
