Black Horse Western author Phil McCormac sent me a postcard showing the Dark Hedges of Ballymoney in Northern Ireland. I’d never heard of them, but I almost did a double take when I saw the card – the hedges are almost exactly what I was thinking of when I wrote ‘The Wood’.
These trees lean over the road, with their twisted boughs and darkness. All that is needed is a line of skulls on sticks, and The Wood sits in front of you!
Here are some links for pictures:
