Welcome!

Our nature trail has been designed for children aged 7-12 but anyone can have a go.

As you walk around our garden you will find images of a variety of creatures. Each of these images is linked to an activity sheet which can be downloaded below.

You can pick and choose which of these activity sheets you tackle as they are not designed to be completed in a set order. It is a good idea to also download the map to mark down where you find each creature.

Please note this activity has been created with the warmer months of the year in mind.

Children: please be respectful of this wonderful Victorian garden, and of the other visitors, while you are here.

Keep yourself safe:

  • Do not go near the pond without an adult. There are no creature images to be found in the pond area.
  • Walk sensibly in the woodland areas as it is easy to trip over tree roots if you are running.
  • Stay away from the beehives on the far side of the vegetable garden – our bees are not a friendly bunch!
  • If you are careful and quiet you will have a much greater chance of observing the wildlife in the garden.

Finally: enjoy your visit!
