Arboretum


The epicentre of the Arboretum lies around the big pool where many rare and ornamental trees can be seen in flower or fruit at all times of the year; their autumn colours are a special beauty.

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

Well done Sandra Hill and your team on organising the Bodenham Bound on Sunday morning ( no small feat!) - a multi terrain 5k /10 k running race around the grounds here at Bodenham. Some 150 entrants and over £1400 raised for the charity 'Fight for Sight' (The Eye Research Charity) in the process - well done to everyone who took part too!A few of the photos from the run yesterday! A huge thank you to Colin Hill for taking the photos. Apparently he has over 900 to sort through and we will get those up on the website in the next day or two. ... See MoreSee Less

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.
