Blaze of autumn colour at Batsford
9:00am Sunday 13th October 2013 in News
VISITORS to Batsford Arboretum, near Moreton, can look forward to its annual blaze of autumn colour this month.
Home to one of the largest private collections of trees and shrubs in the country, the 56-acre arboretum is a treat not to be missed from mid-October to mid-November when the trees put on a show-stopping display of reds, golds and yellows.
Operations director Stuart Priest said this year has already proved an amazing year in the Cotswold arboretum.
“Spring was amazing”, he said.”But we expect autumn to be the star of the show – as it is most years.”
As well as the spectacular colour displays, visitors to Batsford can soak up the smells of autumn as the Katsura trees provide an overpowering burnt sugar smell.
“People are often surprised by Batsford which has an intimate, romantic feel to it thanks to the meandering paths and streams and spectacular views across the Evenlode Valley and Cotswolds beyond,” said Mr Priest.
