The Clinton-Baker Pinetum is a historic collection of conifers over a 10-acre site including 200 species of conifer set within beautiful mixed woodland. It is 10-15 minute walk to the Pinetum on a marked track. 

Some of the paths in the Pinetum are rough, steep and may be slippery. Suitable footwear should be worn. 

The entry price also allows access in the University’s observatory where astronomers will be on hand to talk about the work they do. The observatory offers wheelchair access.   

Proceeds from the entry fee will be shared between the British Red Cross and Friends of Clinton-Baker Pinetum. The Friends Association can be found at
