Autumn Almanac

It’s definitely getting chillier and the leaves have turned to stunning shades of crimson, russet and gold so before it gets too cold put on your walking boots and explore the area.

The Sculpture Trail through Thanet Lee Woods  in Towneley Park has surprises around every corner, from crocodiles to kingfishers, why not see what you can discover?

A longer walk from Towneley along the Wayside Arts Trail up to the Singing Ringing Tree will take longer and requires stamina, but it’s worth it for the fabulous views across Lancashire. Watch the video and be inspired to visit our perfect panopticon.

And don’t forget all the other things that make autumn days so enjoyable, you can collect pine cones and conkers, look out for the squirrels as they build up their food store for the winter,  enjoy feeding the birds in the parks and gardens and  remember the colder weather is the perfect excuse to find a cosy cafe and warm up with a cup of scrummy hot chocolate.
