The Dean Heritage Centre is opening of its brand new monster trail at October half term, just in time for Halloween. Visitors will also be able to take part in ghoulish indoor trails and craft activities as the centre gets spooky.

The Centre has installed a new permanent walking trail, featuring six monster size wooden creatures, set across the five acre woodland site, situated in Soudley.

The creatures have been created by onsite chainsaw carver, Clayton Ryder, with the help of centre volunteers.

Events coming up at the DHC soon include ‘Meet the Gruffalo’ on October 20 and 21, the Big Draw event throughout October half term, as well as Father Christmas and two of his reindeer during Christmas. Visit for further information.
