The Sculpture Trail is located in a natural environment, the land varies and can be uneven and a little soft underfoot even in the summer. We try to limit the number of nettles but also keep patches for insects and butterflies so please wear suitable footwear, especially when the weather is wet. Photography is permitted as long as the photographs are not used for any commercial purposes. Well behaved dogs on leads are welcome.
There is free parking on site and disabled parking bays close to the Ravenous Cafe which is wheelchair accessible. Parts of the sculpture trail are not wheelchair accessible due to the uneven ground. There are toilets located on the car park which are wheelchair accessible. Please contact Liz Cannell for further information on 01508 548406 or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
