Westgate Wood PE21 7JA
2015 WREN supported the widening and resurfacing of the woodland path.
2016 Transported Art sponsored the sculpture by James Sutton
This was the first area to be planted in 1999, covering an area of 23.5 acres. It lies between Five House Lane and Old Hammond Beck Road in Wyberton, where there are areas for parking off both roads. The trees are now well established with snowdrops, daffodils, bluebells and other woodland flowers adding to the natural beauty.
Near to original Westgate Wood bench is an area of “Memorial” trees planted on behalf of S.A.N.D.S. (Stillbirth and neonatal death society).
The wood is serviced by an all-weather path, with several seats along the way making it suitable for all users.
Here you will find the Seeds of Time sculpture. With funding and expertise provided by Transported, an Arts Council funded organisation that promotes art in the community, we commissioned the sculptor James Sutton to produce a sculpture to represent Sir Joseph Banks. Inspired by botanical drawings of Hakea seeds done during an expedition to Australia James created the Seeds of Time sculpture. This can be found at the end of the Stump View.
