A new visitor centre for Winkworth Arboretum 

Winkworth Arboretum was created over 80 years ago as a glorious celebration of trees. It was the creation of local physician and horticulturalist Dr Wilfrid Fox in the 1930s and has been in the complete care of the National Trust since 1988. We're are now making further investments so that it remains a horticultural gem.
