If you visit the beautiful Stoke Park Estate between Tuesday 31st May and Monday 6th June you and your children will be able to watch the creation of a wooden sculpture trail!

The sculpture trail is being created by wood sculptor, Andy O’Neill and will be carved from fallen dead wood, so that no trees will be damaged in the process.

Andy will be creating the sculptures in the Branwood and Longwood Woods on the estate, this walking map will show you how to find him.

The sculptures are being designed with the help of local groups and schools, including Filton Avenue Nursery, Filton Avenue Primary School, Stoke Park School, The Vench and The Craft group who have all shared their ideas.

Once the sculpture trail is complete there will be a trail map available online to download.

Stoke Park Estate is a fantastic place to visit and at this time of year there’s lots to see, such as ducklings, dragon flies and a variety of birds. And, if you visit the lake at dusk you be able to see lots of Daubenton’s bats feeding from the lake!

Stoke Park Estate also boasts a brand new pond dipping platform so bring some fishing nets too!
