This beautiful site at Sutton Bingham, Yeovil, opened on 2nd March 2004. It is one of the many sites that have been opened in Somerset and was graciously donated by Wessex Water.
The site can be located from leaving Yeovil following the A37 towards Dorchester. After about 4 miles a signpost to your right directs you towards the tiny village of Netherton and the Life for a Life Memorial Forest.
Located on the south side of the reservoir, which was built in 1950 and near the fishing lodge, this site has outstanding views across the reservoir towards the Yacht Club.
The site is also of national importance for overwintering wildfowl and passing migrant bird species, including the Osprey. Life for a Life is of course committed to the long-term protection and care of the environment.
Life for a Life planting areas are natural environments where we encourage wildlife and plantlife to flourish, as such additional items should not be added to the tree or the space around it, especially as they can cause damage to the tree. Please be aware that any prohibited items left on or around memorial trees will be removed.
