Our free Skylark Nature Trail is so called due to a large number of Skylarks we hear in Spring & Summer. They’re hard to see, as they’re small & hover so high. They hover, watching for seeds & insects.

The trail begins & ends in the car park at Apley Farm Shop. It is about 1 mile (1.5 km) & takes about 45 mins. There are 7 information boards – Field View, Badgers, Farming, History, Woodland, Geology & Hedgerows. Enjoy a rest on the benches near each Information board.

Follow the arrows & on your journey look out for the badger setts, what’s growing in the fields, the owl nesting boxes in the woods, what’s growing in the hedgerows. Our Nature Trail includes chainsaw animal carvings, made by Dave Bytheway, how many will you be able to spot?
