Attraction Information

If your kids love The Wind in the Willows, take them to Hanningfield Reservoir and bring their favourite story to life with the Wind in the Willows sculpture trail. It’s the perfect outdoor fairytale adventure! 

Grab a trail map and a crayon from the visitor centre and venture into the Wild Wood where you’ll find beautiful, colourful wooden sculptures of the most popular characters from the book. Wondering what the crayon is for? Each sculpture has a brass rubbing of the animal it represents - your little ones will have a wonderful collection of all the brass rubbings at the end. Plus, they're so much fun to make!  

The trail is buggy and wheelchair friendly and there is no need to book, so you can just get the kids ready and go say “hi” to  Mr. Toad and his friends. The photos of the day will be awesome too! 

  • Great fun for all the family
  • Wooden sculptures of Mr. Toad and friends
  • Fully accessible trail
