We made our first ever visit to Westonbirt Arboretum which can be found in Gloucestershire near to Tetbury. We had threatened to visit for a couple of years but never made it. And I’ve always been keen to visit at the right time for the autumn colours. We arrived later in the day due to a crash on the M4, and managed to walk only half of the Arboretum. We were not disappointed. Stunning.
Here follows photo overload. No apologies.
A great place for bark rubbings.
Managed by the Forestry Commission – my Grandad worked for them 🙂 Many of the trees are labelled to assist learning. We visited prior to the breaking news of the ash disease and subsequent legislation to help control the problem – so sad to hear of this.
Many places to eat and take afternoon tea – which we did. A fabulous way to spend a day.
How is Autumn looking near you?
