WHITCHURCH Silk Mill has launched a new nature trail to encourage visitors to visit the historic venue.

The Edge Youth Project, in partnership with the Silk Mill, has introduced a “Mini Beast Project” designed to attract younger visitors to explore the Mill’s natural surroundings.

The trail, made up of six stations, is free to access with entry to the mill. It will enable children to discover some of the wildlife that inhabits in the garden. A magnifying glass, trail map and an information sheet will be provided.
