Cheltenham Borough Council has made available a series of self-guided trails to showcase the Gloucestershire town's most significant parkland trees.

Visitors to the town’s Green Flag award-winning Sandford, Montpellier and Pittville Parks can pick up a map and follow a route to discover and learn about some of the species they contain, including Turkey oak, London plane, sweet gum and tulip tree.

The council’s senior tree officer Chris Chavasse said: "We are so lucky in Cheltenham to have such a rich variety of trees. It’s great to get back to nature and take the time to appreciate our trees in their wonderful surroundings."

The leaflets are avilable locally or can be downloaded from the council website.
