Artist's Description

Opened to the public in January 2005, this beautifully crafted wooden treehouse stands as a major feature of the Alnwick Castle Garden and grounds. “It is built from Canadian cedar, Scandinavian redwood and English and Scots pine, from sustainable resources. It’s high in the treetops in a copse of mature lime trees, and looks as if it’s been there forever.” At the heart of The Treehouse is a beautiful and very unique restaurant. There’s a roaring log fire in the centre of the room, and trees growing through the floor (as you might expect with a treehouse) and the furniture is handcrafted with screens created from fallen branches. Also a part of the treehouse design, there are walkways in the sky and wobbly rope bridges for bouncing on. It is a magical place to visit indeed!

Because of the size of the building, it wasn’t practical to use tree supports – instead it is held up with a combination of a huge network of wooden braces, concrete foundations and two concrete towers hidden within the design of the treehouse. The gardens are owned and managed by the charity The Alnwick Garden Trust.

This is a HDR image combining 3 bracketed shots using Photomatix Pro for Macs. Adjustments in lighting and contrast were made using the enhanced details tool.
