The Fairy Trees, Avebury, Wiltshire, England

The Fairy Trees at Avebury, Wiltshire are amazingly beautiful and have an incredible network of roots visible  above ground

From the branches hang coloured ribbons and little paper notes, whilst tucked in amongst the roots are pieces of paper screwed up into balls and wooden mementos, each inscribed with personal wishes and thoughts as well as momentos for loved ones. 

In Folklore, these trees are believed to be a pathway to the Underworld of the Sidhe (elves/fairies).
