From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Windlesham Arboretum is situated between the villages of Windlesham and Lightwater in the county of Surrey, UK. The arboretum is medium in size and features over 22,000 mature and rare trees, lakes, monuments, follies and a chapel. The Windle Brook runs through the arboretum but it does not feed the lakes.

The Arboretum is privately owned but the public is given access free of charge during daylight hours.

There are a number of residences within the grounds of the Arboretum. One is the home of Major William Spowers who founded the Arboretum.Major Spowers died on 12th June 2009

The Arboretum is popular with those of the local residents who have discovered it, although it is surprisingly little known. The Arboretum is also used by the Windlesham Angling Society who, during the fishing season, hold competitions on some weekends.

An archeological survey of the Arboretum was carried out by the Surrey Heath Archaeological & Heritage Trust[1] and found coins and pottery and signs of old Iron Age enclosure ditches and Romano-British agricultural buildings.
