Batsford is a 55-acre arboretum and botanical garden near Batsford in Gloucestershire, England, and couple of miles from Moreton-in-Marsh. It is owned and run by the Batsford Foundation, a registered charity.    

Autumn brings with it a riot of leaf colour ranging from deep butter yellow through to orange reds and crimsons as well as an abundance of berries.  It’s a natural firework spectacular throughout the autumn months.

The arboretum contains around 2,900 trees, with a large collection of Japanese maples, magnolias and pines.
