UK’s longest treetop walkway opens at Westonbirt Arboretum https://t.co/28zBoQjMiP

“We are very proud to have designed this unique treetop walkway for the historic and internationally renowned arboretum at Westonbirt,” said architect Glenn Howells. “The walkway allows all visitors, regardless of age or ability, to experience the site from the treetops for the first time. Focusing on visitor needs and materiality, the walkway is designed to disappear as a sinuous silver ribbon that meanders between trees and canopies. The aim is that this new feature will greatly enhance visitor experience and help to ensure Westonbirt’s popularity for many years to come.” The walkway overlooks many of the 240-hectare Westonbirt Arboretum’s specimens, which include 120 UK champion trees, 73 red data species, and a number of national collections.
