The body of lore surrounding the Wild Hunt connects it with the underworld including ghostly characters such as King Arthur and Gwyn ap Nudd (said to live under Glastonbury Tor) and dogs and horses, both animals which have an association with death.

We shortly reached an unusual grove of three yew trees. Directly in the centre is an oak tree that stands tall and straight, seeming to gather the energy of the surroundings yews and direct it above and below in a powerful vortex. After offering herbs to each of the trees, I nestled in to one of the wrinkly yews and instantly became acutely aware of the discomfort in my stomach.
