Treeshedworking Week - Alnwick Gardens Treehouse

We've never got round to featuring the marvellous treehouse at Alnwick Gardens so Treeshedworking Week seems a good opportunity to rectify that laziness. The treehouse is one of the largest in the world, was opened in 2005 and is a 6,000 sq ft complex of 'turret topped cottages' linked by suspended walkways away from the main garden. The treehouse was built from Canadian Cedar, Scandinavian Redwood and English and Scots pine. The complex takes in various education and resource rooms, a restaurant (through which grow tree branches covered in leaves) and soon a tree-based play area designed to be 'safely dangerous'.
