About the Trail

The trail has been set up to encourage families to explore the wonderful area we live in.

Although we have set up the trail in a way where points can be awarded and prizes won, the important thing is that as many people as possible enjoy the trail for as many or as few locations as they are able to do.

The overall theme of the trail is children’s books and the range of books you can find on trail are appropriate for pre-school children to teenagers.

We have hundreds of children’s books available as part of the trail and we would encourage children to take some books, they have enjoyed and are finished with, along with them on to swap with book they find on the trail.
