The Westonbirt Wood Project

Once a cattle shed and holding pen, Westonbirt’s Wood Centre is a prominent heritage feature within the arboretum landscape. This project will revitalise this space, creating a central point for all timber-related activities.

Gazing out from the Treetop Walkway, the viewer will see this area transformed into a hub of activity.

These new facilities will be of great benefit to Westonbirt, allowing us to mill, store and sell wood.

The public will also be able to buy unique pieces of quality Westonbirt timber and furniture in the shop, take part in pre-booked wood craft workshops and learn about traditional crafts at the demonstration area.

This project sets out to promote a better understanding of the huge range of possibilities that trees, and their amazing products, have to offer.

It will showcase the lifecycle of trees at Westonbirt – from tiny seed, to magnificent specimen, to bespoke craft and construction material.

This project will cost around £140,000 in total. Please donate to the Westonbirt Wood Project and see this area transformed!
