Artist's Description

The late eveing sun gave some wonderful light in the wild woods of Harrow Weald. The path runs along Grym’s Dyke. The dyke or ditch is believed to be one of the few remaining Anglo-Saxon trenches in England, where Norse tribes were converted to Christianity in the 8^th^ and 9^th^ centuries.
Its name, the grim, is derived from the word ‘hooded’, a description of the dark appearance of the Norse god, Woden. Woden was the carrier-off of the dead and the god for whom Wednesday was named after.
