Friends of Westonbirt Arboretum

The Westonbirt Project

We had big ambitions for the Westonbirt Project, the results of which have been truly transformative. From the STIHL Treetop Walkway to the downs restoration and relocation of the car park, this work has had a huge impact on Westonbirt, The National Arboretum and the way visitors enjoy the site. Take a look at our recent HLF report to find out more and watch our video 'Making the Project' to discover how it came to be.
