Woodlands are slowly turning from lush green to yellow, gold and brown colours as the autumn takes hold.

And the different variety of trees at Lynford Arboretum in Thetford Forest make for perfect autumnal photos, as our photographer Simon Parker demonstrates following a visit to the Forestry Commission site this week.

The arboretum, formerly part of the Lynford Hall estate, is home to more than 200 tree species and was used by trainee foresters in the 1940s.

The Forestry Commission lists the likes of the National Arboretum in Gloucestershire, Wye Valley in the Forest of Dean, Grizedale Forest, in the Lake District, and Bolderwood, in the New Forest, as the best places to see the colours of autumn.

But we think Lynford Arboretum and the nearby lakes, on the Norfolk-Suffolk border, is a fine place to visit and see the changing tree colours.

This year, members of the public can also follow how quickly woodlands are changing colour and help the Forestry Commission keep this up to date.
