Mark Frith

Great Oak, Nibley Green, Gloucestershire. The tree that started it all for artist Mark Frith's project, this oak is said to have 'seen' a battle fought here between two private feudal armies in 1470. The tree was used as cover for a surprise attack. Mark Frith remembers playing inside the tree's hollowed-out trunk as a child.
