Still Waters

A prehistoric forest which was buried under water and sand more than 4,500 years ago has been uncovered by Storm Hannah.

The petrified trees lie between Ynyslas and Borth in Ceredigion county.

The forest has become associated with a 17th Century myth of a sunken civilization known as 'Cantre'r Gwaelod', or the 'Sunken Hundred'.

It is believed the area was a once-fertile land and township protected by floodgates.

The remains of the forest's trees, preserved in the local peat, have been exposed by low tides and high winds.
