yew woods and Paterzell

Walking under the canopy of yew branches in the woods of the Paterzell one can learn many aspects of the Yew. Several stations set along the path guide the eye of the wandered to the particulars of this tree.

Yew wood has an old recorded history of use. From bowmaking to lutes, chemothreapy in the modern times, and for more or less earthy purposes very often found near graveyards and churches.
