MANY HAVE ENTERED, NOT ALL HAVE RETURNED...

Are you man, woman or child enough to try our ever-popular Dinosaur Trail? Don’t let appearances fool you. The bluebells may be buzzing with bees and there is certainly lush green foliage all around, not to mention those gnarled branches and roots dripping with moss and lichen, a crystal clear stream gurgling by the side of the path and distant fields peppered with lazy sheep.

SOUNDS IDYLLIC, DOESN’T IT?
WELL, THINK AGAIN! FOR THIS IS CERTAINLY NO ORDINARY WOODLAND. NO, SIR!

Rumours are rife that somewhere deep inside lurk over 30 dinosaurs including a Brachiosaurus, as heavy as ten elephants, and a Stegosaurus with her baby. OK, so you may not have to worry about those latter two: neither eat meat and Steggy’s top speed wouldn’t trouble your ancient granddad. But what about the vicious Deinonychus, faster than Usain Bolt? Or the seven-ton T-Rex, rumbling around in the undergrowth? T Rex’s jaws are so huge they can swallow a human whole. And both are always hungry.

As if that is not enough to worry about, what on earth is that huge, great, Big Slimy Thing in the swamp? Crikey, Moses!

So please, please make sure you keep your wits about you at all times, if you want to make it out of the Dinosaur Trail in one piece.

YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!

Every time we go, I love watching my 4 year old’s face when he stumbles upon another 'sneaky dinosaur,' during our walk throught the Woodland Trail, like it’s the first time he’s seen them (we’ve visitied quite a few times now). It honestly makes my heart swell to the size of a T-Rex.
