STIHL Treetop Walkway

Following in Holford’s footsteps – a vision for the future!

Robert Holford designed the drives and rides carefully throughout the arboretum following the picturesque principles of variety, intricacy and connection.

The Treetop Walkway will take his vision to a new level, adding a third dimension – over 12 metres above the ground (13.5m to be precise!)

Following a serpentine route through the trees the Treetop Walkway will give you a taste of the dark intimacy and soaring views that can come from weaving in and out of the tree canopy. It will also  provide a fun and hands-on way for all our visitors to learn more about trees.

The Walkway is designed with the contours of the land to provide step free access into Silk Wood which can be used by mobility scooters, wheelchairs and pushchairs.
