Ibstock Trust funds new natural play trail at Leigh Woods, Bristol

A new play trail has been opened at Leigh Woods near Bristol, thanks in part to a £15,000 grant from Ibstock Cory Environmental Trust. The play trail, which will be cared for by the National Trust, has been created using natural materials and includes a range of activities to encourage families to explore more of the woodland, which forms part of the Avon Gorge Site of Special Scientific Interest. 

The new play trail activities include balance boards between trees, hollow logs to explore, a woodland fort and a giant basket swing for gazing up at the leafy canopy overhead. As well as the new play trail, visitors to Leigh Woods can follow a selection of waymarked walking routes and mountain biking trails.
