A picture is worth a thousand words

Paul Osborne, one of the founding members of the Friends of Thorpe Woodlands, has created a wonderful painting which captures one of the most beautiful areas within Racecourse Plantation.

The painting was published in this Monday's Eastern Evening News together with another picture, this time an ariel photograph of the woods.

Both pictures help to show why these superb woods need to be saved.

The Photograph graphically illustrates the dominance of deciduous trees in the wood (remember the Trustees are claiming these woods are a pine plantation with little wildlife). Paul's beautiful painting illustrates the beauty of the woods and the way that they can inspire people.

Paul's painting can be seen in more detail in our gallery or by clicking here.
