Superworm Trail – Moors Valley Country Park

Superworm Trail – Moors Valley Country Park

We are very lucky to leave within an hour of a fantastic woodland area called Moors Valley Country Park. If you're regular readers you will have read at least one post mentioning a visit. Moors Valley is a great place to spend the day and is home to many different permanent and temporary trails throughout the year. When M was small we walked the Stickman trail, last year we walked the Gruffalo Trail and this month we were invited to take the Superworm Trail. The trail takes you round the gorgeous lake, situated…continue reading →
Collecting a year at Moors Valley Park

Collecting a year at Moors Valley Park

Last year we visited Moors Valley Park so much, we very nearly bought one of their annual car park passes to spread the cost of visiting. It's certainly our favourite place to visit in Dorset and has almost become a second home. The cost of visiting isn't actually a negative, we only have to pay for the car park if we take a picnic, which is fantastic for a whole day out somewhere fun. This month I realised I had an opportunity to capture a year of Moors Valley Park. I really enjoy…continue reading →

Last year C and I took M on a Gruffalo Trail round Moors Valley Park. It was raining, M fell asleep and C and I ended up filling in all the clues on our own whilst M snoozed.

The fab folk at the Forestry Commission are helping The Gruffalo celebrate their 15th Anniversary. This meant our favourite…continue reading →

Armed with pac a macs, wellies and a small picnic, we piled into the car and sang during our journey to the woods. Moors Valley Park is fast becoming somewhere lots of happy days are spent. With plenty to see and do, several play areas and lots of trees to climb, there is something…continue reading →
A love for the woodland

A love for the woodland

I've had a love of the woods since I was a child. I have photos of me climbing trees and splashing through puddles when I was a child and to be honest I haven't changed much. Nothing relaxes me quite as much as a walk through the woods, I also enjoy taking pictures of trees and the many textures you find in the woods. It pleases me so much that our little man seems to share my love for the woods. He becomes a great explorer as soon as we enter the woodland.…continue reading →
