Snoddlesworth the snail will be leaving a curious trail for children to follow this half term at the National Trust’s Peckover House.

The Autumn Snail Trail will leave a series of clues around the garden of Peckover House, each clue leading to the next. At the end of the trail there’ll be a specially baked autumn biscuit in the Reed Barn as a prize.

‘We wanted to make the half term trail a little different this time,’ said the trail’s organiser Diane Smith, ‘so I really hope families will enjoy solving the clues together whilst exploring the garden. There will be extra activities too this year, such as the Build Your Own Monster session in the Reed Barn on Wednesday 24 October.’

The Autumn Snail Trail can be enjoyed in the garden from Saturday 20 to Sunday 28 October, from 11am to 4pm and will cost £1 per child plus normal entrance for non National Trust members. The house and garden will be open every day during half term.
