Douglas is carved from a 140-year-old fallen pine within in the grounds of the Cragside Estate. The artwork was created by Tommy Craggs from Durham.
The latest edition of the National Trust Magazine provides a brief news snippet:
Tree carvings can be seen in places ranging from inner-city Victorian parks to the great landscapes of the National Trust. We would like your help to track them down. Please send pictures and comments to us as part of a project that includes members of the National Trust, the Woodland Trust, the Arboricultural Association and the Ancient Tree forum.
In a previous post I blogged about an owl sculpture within the formal gardens at Cragside.
