so many reasons to oppose nuclear and to keep Cumbrian stories going on forever..still looking for the Ghost Orchid in Cumbrian Beech woods…..
10th July 1996
Aunt Vera has written with the names of boffin friends to contact. When she was 11 in 1924, Vera found the mythical Ghost Orchid (Epipogium aphyllum) in a beech wood near Henley. It was first discovered in 1854 and rare sightings can be decades and woodlands apart. No one is sure how the Ghost Orchid pollinates but it is known to rely on fungi- especially honey fungus.
