A 10-acre wood in Worcestershire, felled to make way for a World War II aerodrome, has been replanted.

National Trust staff and volunteers planted 7,000 trees to recreate Old Wood next to Croome Court.

The original wood pre-dates the building of the house and grounds in the 18th Century by Lancelot 'Capability' Brown.

Katherine Alker, Croome's Garden and Park Manager, said the team had mainly planted native British trees.

These include ash, oak, holly, hazel and beech.
