Gruffalo's friends sculptures

Moors Valley Country Park has transformed its forest into the deep dark wood, with the installation of all the character sculptures from the Gruffalo story.

Visitors will be able to seek out the story characters in the forest picnic area and set their imaginations alight on their own Gruffalo adventure. 

New activity sheets have been created to get children exploring the deep dark wood with activities that encourage them to find, feel, listen and spot in the forest.

The Gruffalo is a fantastic forest themed family story which is thoroughly enjoyed by our visitors. After the success of our Gruffalo Spotters trail, it is great to be able to add another dimension to our Gruffalo story by installing these beautifully carved sculptures of the books’ characters that can be enjoyed by families for many years. We hope people have fun meeting them on their forest adventure at Moors Valley.
