An opportunity to visit to the Windlesham Arboretum. Described by the BBC on their website " a hidden gem", the Arboretum is right next to the M3 between Lightwater and Windlesham. Thousands drive past it every day without being aware of its existence and I must confess to having never heard of it myself - and I grew up in Lightwater!

The Arboretum is privately owned and managed and there is a "Friends of Windlesham Arboretum". The Arboretum was planted by Major William Spowers - he planted between 4,500 -5,000 trees - who was inspired by the work of Capability Brown at Chatsworth as well as Humphry Repton. Major Spowers drained the land and created hills, lakes and ponds. There are statues, follies, monuments and bridges to be discovered as well as an amphitheatre.

Meet at South Farm Lane at 10.00am for an hour's gentle walk.
