It’s not every day you stumble across a perfectly preserved fossil tree stump kingdom. A site of special scientific interest since its discovery in 1887, Glasgow’s fossil grove is situated within Victoria Park. The fossils, which formed during the carboniferous period 325 million years ago, are in fact petrified tree stumps frozen in their growing position. These 11 stumps are extinct lepidodendron trees or ‘giant club mosses’. Puns aside, this enchanting fossilised forest will truly stump you!
