You may have noticed various creatures popping up at Heartwood Forest over the past week.


They are part of the Magical Meander, a trail which leads to the Magical Wood. They are sponsored by the Disney Store and are designed to give families even more to enjoy during a walk at Heartwood.

They represent the wildlife that thrives around Heartwood Forest.


At the centre of the Magical Wood is now a fantastic picnic table, representing all the trees that we have at Heartwood Forest.


There are a couple more sculptures still to go in, but it is hoped that the installation will be finished by the end of November. They are the work of Will Lee, who many of you may have seen carving at the Heartwood Forest Summer Festival.
