Longshaw Woods - Spooky Autumn Trail......

Creep and crawl your way over the bridges and through the woods at Longshaw this Halloween. There'll be a map to help you find some spooky places and have eerie adventures, and some challenges and riddles to solve along the way. Why not come dressed ready to spook our visitors. Will you hear the hoot of a witch's owl or feel the tickle of a hairy spider?

10.30 - 3.30 during half term....

Trail leaflets available for £1 from the welcome centre or tea shop and dogs on leads welcome.
