Westonbirt is currently a photographers delight with a gorgeous array of colours flooding the arboretum! We are sharing many of your pics in the Welcome Building so that other visitors will be able to see your amazing images. If you'd like to share pictures more directly, send them to photos.westonbirt@forestry.gov.uk

This group discussion is for members only.

Group Description

Our Welcome Building is a hotspot for those wanting to discover more about Westonbirt.

We are planning a series of new exhibits for the Welcome Building, including a mosaic of hundreds of photos of the arboretum. Together these images will form a large map of the arboretum. Visitors will be able to use an associated touch screen computer to learn more about the arboretum through the images, thereby gaining a deeper understanding of Westonbirt.

THE MOSAIC MAP HAS NOW BEEN PRODUCED (summer 2014), BUT WE STILL WANT YOUR PHOTOS! WE HAVE A DEDICATED VISITOR SIGHTINGS SCREEN IN THE WELCOME BUILDING WHERE YOUR PHOTOS WILL BE SHARED WITH OTHER VISITORS!

We need images from all over the arboretum and we’d like you to upload your best Westonbirt pictures here.

Images can cover any subject from trees to flowers, landscape to wildlife, people at work to people simply enjoying their day! Photos don’t have to be recent – historic images are also useful.

If possible it would be great if you can give us a grid reference using the arboretum map grid, but a description of the location will do (e.g. path name, area, key tree/feature).
