Welcome To The Gorse Field Children’s Trail
Page being developed July 2021
There is also a Califat Spinney Children’s Trail next door.
Turn The Horse Gin
Hundreds of years ago miners and coal were raised to the surface by a horse gin. Ask an adult to demonstrate this by reaching up to the end of the horizontal bar and walking in a circle.
Bent And Twisted Trees
Most trees usually grow straight, however some trees are shaded by larger trees and scrub, so they grow at all sorts of interesting angles as they search for sunlight. Can you find these interesting trees?
Climb On Trees
Find our fallen climb on trees and see if you can balance all the way from one end to the other.
Visitors are welcome to pick ripe fruit for their personal use. Blackberries in August and September, apples in September.
