|HAVE YOU WALKED THIS WINKWORTH PATH?
Some ten years ago the National Trust closed the access off the Busbridge – Thorncombe Street footpath into the Arboretum and along the lower lake (now the wetlands), that joined with the still open public right of way running north – south through the arboretum. If you have walked this route in the past, please provide a witness statement to help our claim to re-establish the route as a right of way. More info...
