Westonbirt Arboretum Postcode

The postcode for Westonbirt Arboretum is GL8 8QS.

WestonbirtWhy am I putting that on my blog? Because I was woken this morning - and not for the first time - by a phone call and a voice asking "what's the postcode of the Arboretum?". One of the hazards on having a strong online presence is that you'll come up high - far higher than is proper - in certain Google searches, and we're quite used to certain calls. In the case of Westonbirt, I think it's probably because people find this page

As you may image, train and rail time enquiries are not unusual, and at times Lisa feels that she's the secretary for a campaigner on "the next line across" as the press try and reach him but find out site instead. And I have been asked if I can nip into Bathampton church yard an email someone a photo of some of the graves there. But perhaps the strangest was a call the other week, enquiring as to the status of the industrial dispute that had made the news at the Grangemouth oil refinery that had been making the news a couple of weeks previously


Actually, I don't mind the odd call like this (the odd odd call!) occasionally. It adds to the spice of the variety that life brings, and we get to talk to some people who we wouldn't even know existed!
