RSPB Canopy Walkway

A commercial project for the RSPB at Coombes Valley to create a natural play trail including a canopy walkway high in the tree-tops.

A commercial project to create a suspended 'nature-trail' high in the tree canopy

Alongside the wish to create additional visitor foot-fall through the attraction of a wow-factor activity, there is a real intention to experience an ancient woodland and habit from high within the tree canopy - giving a fabulous 'birds-eye-view' in a quiet, peaceful and non-invasive way.

  • Taking you from ground level into a Tree-top Walkway, high over a deep valley and directly into the large tree canopy.

  • A large 'viewing-platform' magically suspended between a group of large trees to really sense and view the wildlife and fauna from above.

  • A further Tree-top Walkway exit back to ground level on the ridge, via a wobbly Rope Bridge deck.

Mostly and largely impenetrable woodland conditions under-foot, but with the Tree-top Walkway set tree-to-tree high in the tree tops above providing a awesome walk in the woods with views of the raw woodland below.
