Poetry trail for OB Marchant Barron

Congratulations to former Bristol Grammar School pupil Marchant Barron (OB, 2007–2014) whose poetry is featured in Westonbirt’s Autumn Trail 2017.

Marchant, who is in his third year of a Creative Writing course at Bath Spa University, has spent the last year working with Westonbirt to develop the installation of eight of his poems amongst the trees to create ‘Conversations with Trees’.

The trail opened on Friday 1 September and will remain in place for three months; do go and visit for yourself if you get the chance. You can read more about the project and Marchant at
