Welcome to our two-year Heritage Lottery funded project, Moments with Trees.

In order to provide visitors with tree-related activities and events that you will enjoy, we've created a survey to find out a little bit more about your tree knowledge. We'd be really grateful if you could respond to this short survey, which also gives you the chance to sign up to our Moments with Trees newsletter. To take the survey, please click here

Watch the Big Tree Hunt here

On 20 August 2017, Moments with Trees hosted its first ever mass walk from Peterborough City Centre to Nene Park, noting trees along the way and concluding with poetry in the Park. To see what they got up to on the day, please click here to watch the video >>

Walk the route...

If you would like to walk the picturesque, 3.7 mile walk from the city centre to Ferry meadows, here is a leaflet available to download that gives details of the route and some of the trees you will meet along the way. Due to the success of the Mass Walk this year, we will be carrying out another next year, so do look out for information on this page and in the Moments with Trees newsletter and Twitter feeds (@moments_w_trees)
