The Dark Hedges – Located in Bregagh Road near Armoy, in Northern Ireland. It is a unique stretch of Beech Trees. In the past 300 years or so, the Beech trees protecting either side of the lane have stretched up and across to each other, becoming heavily tangled to create a natural curved tunnel where shadow and light plays through tangled branches. This lovely avenue of beech trees was planted by the Stuart family in the eighteenth century.  It was intended as a fascinating landscape feature to excite visitors as they approached the entrance to their home, Gracehill House.  Two centuries later, the trees remain a superb sight and have become known as “The Dark Hedges. The hedges are apparently haunted by a spectral ‘grey lady’ and form an arc over the road. The beech trees have now become one of the Most Photographed monuments in Northern Ireland.
