The 'Terrror Trail' at Halloween, High Lodge Thetford Forest

Youngsters are being given chance dress in their scariest outfits and enjoy a wicked afternoon in Sherwood Pines Forest Park, near Clipstone.

The Forestry Commission is running a Halloween drop in event from 12 noon to 3pm on 29 October with children able to follow a magical trail around the trees and get crafty making pencil holders, pendants and animal masks.

“The 3,000 acre wood is the perfect place to get into the Halloween spirit, especially if you come in fancy dress,” explained ranger Karina Thornton.

A small charge applies for each activity and youngsters must be accompanied by an adult. 

The event meets at the forest classroom near the public car park in Sherwood Pines, which is signed off the B6030 Ollerton to Clipstone road.  More information on 01623 822447.
