The Grand Avenue, which is in it’s infancy, is planted with Pope’s Seat Provenance Beech to mature over the next century.

Thanks Martin. The memorial’s been here quite a while. Last year we added the plaque for Jennifer.

We love it here, went for a lovely walk last Friday followed by a carvery in the restaurant, can't wait for our granddaughter to be old enough to show her round

Our History

It all started in 1973 when David Binnian and his wife, Jennifer bought the land with a vision that took over 30 years to realise. It started as my hobby, just planting a few trees each winter, until it developed into what it is today. It’s now run as a family venture, with the second generation of Binnians fully involved in its planning, development and day-to-day management, and the third generation hovering in the wings. When Bodenham received conditional English Heritage status in 1995 it was realised that this was a major opportunity for the Arboretum to be enjoyed by the public and for it to remain in the family.
