a last glorious flourish
Slowly, with the coming of cooler winds, autumn’s change subtly creeps above the horizon of the turning seasons, and the world of nature starts to slow down and alter. The hectic burgeoning of spring and the long days of summer are being replaced with the bounty that is the harvest of autumn. And in the Linn Park, as the morning sun illuminates the park’s hillside and the top wood, the brilliant hues of autumn’s colours celebrate nature’s last glorious flourish, as the old prepares to make way for the eventual coming of the new.
There are a large number of ways to walk from the White Bridge to the top wood, round it, and back.
Routes up the way include going up the tarmac path to the stables and then round thro the stables wood, or up the meadow, or somewhat longer by following the river south; the path then comes out below the crematorium, so cut across to the top wood.
This page is based on the work of Bob Gray who walked the park and made an amazing list of the trees that he saw at each spot, marking the spots on a map.
The first [left] tab shows the List of Trees and the Points where they are to be found. The map on the middle tab shows the location of the points. The last [right] tab shows the points in order along the route that Bob followed.
