Gruffalo’s Child Trail at Wendover Woods

By | October 12, 2014

This morning we headed out to Wendover Woods. As part of the 10th anniversary of The Gruffalo’s Child the Forestry Commission are running self-led activity trails, you may remember we walked the Gruffalo Trail earlier this year.

As soon as the children saw the signs they were excited!

We played in the den building area again and the children walked along fallen trees. The huge Gruffalo sculpture was at the end of the trail, looking slightly worse for wear since our last visit.
