Meet seven of the characters from the classic stories out on our nature reserve. Test your map reading skills by following our beautifully designed Brambly Hedge map, which is available for £1.00 from the Nature Discovery Centre, and find Wilfred and his fellow Brambly Hedge mice including Primrose, Lord Woodmouse and Lady Woodmouse. Take part in the wildlife quiz as you go around the trail and learn about mice, where they live and what they eat. 

As a memento of your Brambly Hedge adventure why not purchase one of our lovely pin badges or why not start to collect the whole set? You can relive the adventures of Wilfred at home with a series of books that are available to buy.

The trail is wheelchair and buggy friendly and open every day (except Christmas Day and Boxing Day). For more information please call 01206 738172.
