For a few weeks during October and November, the changing colours of autumn have a dramatic impact on the area. The pictures on this page were all taken during November 2006. A more recent addition to the page is a video slideshow that I put together in October 2009.

Birchwood Forest Park
Oakwood Gate and Walled Garden
Birchwood Point and Boulevard
On Birchwood Point, there is a large stone which can be seen from Birchwood Way. I know nothing about its significance or history, but it is featured in several of the photographs here.
