This is a magical place I found hidden in the far northern corner of Fernworthy Forest many years ago . Once you step through the ‘hidden’ entrance (it looks like a track ‘dead-end’) you enter a green cavern or cathedral with a wide ‘ride’ covered in lush green moss and a green roof far, far above. All you can hear are your muffled steps on moss and the odd snapping twig underfoot. I suspect one day this beautiful place will be cut down for timber, so best enjoy this while you still can.

Update (03/06/20): Sadly this area has been felled, with the Green Cathedral likely being affected, so this item is now here for the purposes of remembering what was once there. (Info from Max Piper.)
