Once upon a time, words began to vanish from the language of children…” – Robert Macfarlane, The Lost Words
Join us this summer for The Lost Words Trail by Bright Woods Forest School CIC. Discover the wonders of nature all around you at Raby Castle and explore the Walled Gardens to help us find the hidden words so they aren’t lost forever. Once you have found the words make sure you remember to use them so that they don’t go missing again.
A fun, yet educational Trail suitable for all ages and a great addition to any visit to Raby Castle this summer holiday.
