A Different Season but just as lovely….

Autumn is the time we normally visit Westonbirt for all the fantastic autumn colours..it is spectacular.  So a visit in high summer left us wondering just what we would see and feel (apart from hot!).

The main purpose of the visit was see the new Tree Top Walk, a magnificent structure that take you high up into the canopy…. and what a great experience it was to look down rather than up at all the majestic trees.

But it was really the wonderful collection of trees we had come to see. Pine, Cedar, Oak and Beech are perhaps the stars but there is much more to explore.  So take a shady walk with us…its cooler under the trees…

 

And Yes…you can get lost on all the trails but the map provided does help

Just as a reminder of the Autumn Colour to come and why we will be back here so here is an image from a previous year

More from the Cotswold to follow (if we have a signal?
