1 - Aged Laburnum. The dark heartwood contrasts strongly against the very pale sapwood, wrapped by intact bark.

2 - Yew. Another strongly contrasting heartwood to sapwood surrounded by rich coloured brown bark.


3 - Churchwood. This is a deciduous wood, I'm not sure what species, but it grew in Great Paxton churchyard itself.

4 - Younger Laburnum. Yellowish wood with some darker "spalting" on the edge and through the wood, these will probably darken as they age.
