To enjoy the Nature Trail, little ones can follow The Very Hungry Caterpillar™-themed signs to explore the lakes, play areas, bug hotels, stepping logs and hopscotch!

Amidst their adventures, children will also discover an incredible, giant wooden sculpture of The Very Hungry Caterpillar crafted by local sculptor Steven Porchmouth. There’s also a spider climbing frame in the heart of the Nature Trail, adding to the host of fun outdoor activities.

New for 2021 is a series of audio readings from the Eric Carle classic, which you can listen to via QR codes as you explore the Nature Trail. Simply scan the codes on the signs using your phone. The story has been brought to life by eight school children from Stone St. Mary’s CE Primary School. You can listen to the recordings here:

Monday - One apple

Tuesday – Two pears

Wednesday – Three plums

Thursday – Four strawberries

Friday – Five oranges

Saturday – Stomach-ache!

Sunday – Big, fat caterpillar!

A beautiful butterfly!

A one metre sculpture of an apple from the famous picture book has also recently been installed. Made by artist Ptolemy Elrington, the sculpture is comprised only of scrap and recycled metals.
