'Lost arboretum' project to honour Bath suffragettes


Trees are being planted in Bath in place of a torn down arboretum which was created to honour suffragettes.

The original arboretum was planted between 1909 and 1912 at Eagle House in Batheaston, a sanctuary for those involved in the illegal suffragette movement.

The arboretum, which honoured 60 local suffragettes, was ripped up to allow a housing estate to be built.

The new trees will be planted in Bath's Alice Park, Royal Victoria Park and on Bath Spa University's Newton Park campus.

BBC Points West's Ali Vowles has the story.
