Cookworthy Knapp No1 (Acrylic on Box Canvas 76x76cm) SOLD
Known as Cookworthy Knapp, the clump of 140 beech trees have inspired many works of art over the years, but the story behind the landmark is a source of wonder to Devonians and the Cornish.
The cherished sight is known by many different names according to people living in and visiting the area – ‘Cornwall beyond’, ‘grandma’s trees’, ‘nearly home’ or ‘coming home trees’, ‘the unicorn’s wood’ and ‘fairy wood’ – are just a few of the most regularly used nicknames.
Historians believe the trees were planted at the top of the hill nearly 120 years ago – in about 1900 – however there are a number of suggestions as to why.
