Newent Arboretum

Arboretum

A beautiful area of natural peace and tranquillity. Located on the southern outskirts of Newent, not far from the centre of the town along Watery Lane, the Millennium Arboretum is one of the area’s newest attractions. Offering a tranquil environment to take a picnic, for children to play, or to enjoy walking the dog, the 9 acre site is proving to be a popular place to get away from it all. You can lose yourself for hours amongst the wide variety of maturing trees, taking in the peace and quiet of the countryside.

Market House

The town centre featured many half-timbered buildings similar to the one across Church Street, now occupied by Gooch Sports. The large brickbuilding opposite was originally identical in its construction, however it was later ‘modernised’ by cladding it in brick, hence the thicker walls on the ground floor if you look through the windows. Probably the Market Square’s most famous resident was pioneering 1960s record producer, Joe Meek, born in the townhouse, just beyond the Market House.
