New - Canal Trail

We are pleased to announce the launch of our new Canal History Trail around Daisy Nook.

The online trail can be accessed on your phone as you walk around the Country Park, or you can follow it on your computer at home. You can read the text that accompanies the photos or you can listen to the text.

The trail can be found by going to bit.ly/daisynookcanaltrail.

We are planning to install QR codes at several points along the route and to create a trail leaflet to help publicise the trail.
