DescriptionFossil Tree Sigillaria SP This great tree grew in a forest of the middle carboniferous period (about 250 million years ago) near Edmundbyers Cross now 1550 feet above sea-leavel. As its vegetable matter decayed this was replaced by sand which has formed a perfect cast in hard ganister. The roots (Stigmaria) show their characteristic form. The tree was brought to Stanhope and erected here in 1962 by Mr J G Beaston.
