Anyone who has ever been in and out of Cornwall and Devon will recognise the beloved 'Nearly Home' trees or 'Nearly There' Trees'

The small copse of trees, found on the A30 near Lifton, marks the border between Cornwall and Devon and these trees are a familiar sight for anyone leaving on their travels or returning home.

Known as Cookworthy Knapp, the clump of 140 beech trees have inspired many works of art over the years, but the story behind the landmark is a source of wonder to Devonians and the Cornish. Historians believe the trees were planted at the top of the hill around 1900. 

Local photographer Nick Eacott has captured these high quality glossy photographs and attached to the front of the 18cm x 13cm crisp white card stock. Every card is packaged with a high quality white envelope and further protected in a plastic cello bag.
