The Hallowe’en trail, open from Tuesday, October 9 to Sunday, November 4, has been put together by Brilliant Trail, which also designed the Paxton House Fairy Trail and Woodland Trail.

The Paxton House Fairy Trail opened in July and has already received around 1,280 visitors and had some excellent feedback.

Allan Hamillton, owner of Brilliant Trails, said: “What we do is recreate the treasure hunts that we all enjoyed as children, by combining professional quality design with unique trail-setting skills.

“Brilliant Trails allow local people and visitors to interact with their surroundings whilst learning new facts, thus making our trails more creative and fun than a conventional guided walk.”

Julia Hindhaugh, education officer for Paxton House said: “The Paxton House Hallowe’en trail is the perfect follow-on from the success of the fairy trail and a great addition to the selection of trails we offer at Paxton House.

“We hope the children will have as much fun helping Paxton Witch Agnes find her stolen spell as they have done helping to find the lost fairy dust naughty fairy Benjamin hid in the grounds.”

The trail is open daily . Admission is £3 per child (adults must have a grounds pass).
