Santa Origins: Heart Hill (Kristina Olsen) (7) Origins: Heart Hill, by Kristina Olsen 26 Apr 08

I heard this song from Bella Hardy at the Clarence. It tells of a heart-shaped wood seen from the M6, planted by the fiancee of an RAF pilot who had crashed his plane in the neighbourhood.

The following day I was driving Edain back to Durham, when she saw a heart-shaped wood in Tebay gorge. Does anyone know:

Is this the wood that inspired the song?

Is it based on a real story or just inspiration?

Kristina will be at the Clarence in two weeks, and I can ask her there, but I've raised the question of the crash on an aviation site, and am being asked questions I can't (yet) answer.
