Spotted a large adult grass snake in the forest today. Over a foot long! Fun to see.

We visited delamere forest today with 3 children (2x3yrs,1yr). We did the stick man trail and visited the gruffalo. The stick man trail was fantastic, the children really enjoyed themselves and the items in the activity pack were well suited. Will defo be re-visiting.

Now that the Gruffalo trail has finished which path do you need to follow if you want to see the sculpture

If you follow the Linmere Trail, green waymakers, it will take you past the Gruffalo sculpture. Thanks

Will the Gruffalo be back?. I have only just heard about it. We were looking to visit over the Easter period. Devastated that we missed this.

The Gruffalo's Child trail has now ended. However, we do have a Gruffalo sculpture in the forest waiting for a visit.

Will the gruffalo still be there on 8th March? Even though the actual trail may have ended?

Thanks

We had a lovely time doing the Gruffalo trail today, my little boy loved it as his favourite things at the moment are the Gruffalo and picking up sticks so he was in his element

We are pleased you enjoyed your visit to Delamere Forest and hope you will come again for more family fun outdoors.

I was very disappointed with the Gruffalo trail today when I brought my grandchildren to visit. I have been visiting Delamere forest from a child as my family lived in Manley. I am now in my 60's. It was so muddy and the children had to dodge the mountain bike riders at their peril. Is this conservation of an ancient forest, I think not, this is commercial rural tourism gone mad under the pretext of the English forestry commission. I know you will not consider these " negative comments" but what a shame. My ancestors would turn in their grave if they knew. My great grandad was a worker putting in the railway through the forest. I won't be coming back!
