Brimblebottom the brown rat will be just one of the autumn creatures which children visiting the National Trust’s Peckover House this half term will be searching for.

The Autumn Trail in the garden of Peckover House has become a popular event for children and each year the trail has a new theme.

“We like to make the trail fun for children, as well as bringing in elements of the natural world and a touch of autumn magic,” said the trail’s organiser, Diane Smith,

“Characters such as Michaelmas the Heavy Metal Mouse and Snoddlesworth the snail will be searched for in the garden and there will be an autumn biscuit as a prize at the end of the trail.”

The Autumn Trail will be available in the garden of Peckover House from Saturday 21 to Sunday 29 October, from 11am to 3.30pm throughout the week.

Admission costs £1 per child plus normal admission for non National Trust members.
