Who says money doesn't grow on trees? Well, it surely does!
The strange phenomenon of gnarled old trees with coins embedded all over their bark has been spotted on trails from the Peak District to the Scottish Highlands.
The coins are usually knocked into felled tree trunks using stones by passers-by, who hope it will bring them good fortune.
These fascinating spectacles often have coins from centuries ago buried deep in their bark and warped by the passage of time.
Some believe that wizened tree stumps were homes for deities and supernatural creatures.
In fact some people would bring sweets and gifts to the trees on Christmas, hoping some goodwill to the divine entities that lived there
These trees serve amazing sightings, and the different currencies serve as a fascinating window into the past.
Looking at these beautiful images and knowing the history behind them, it's hard to disagree.
