A forest path winding between some pollarded oak trees.

Woodman's Glade - a small clearing in the forest showing some English Longhorn cattle. The cattle are not always here of course as they wander around at will.

These may be fearsome looking beasts, very muscular with impressive looking horns, but they are exceptionally placid.

English Longhorn cattle in Woodman's Glade, Bury Wood, Epping Forest.

Cattle had been grazing in the forest for hundreds of years although it had declined recently but an effort is now being made to re-introduce them again.
