There are now four Story Trails around Wakefield District with the newest one being added to Pontefract Park!! There’s Room on the Broom at Angler’s, Blown Away at Pugney’s, Gnome Roam at Newmillerdam and now Peter’s Peregrine at Pontefract Park. They are a great way to walk as a family as well as discover the new stories together!
Room on the Broom at Angler’s Country Park
Follow the Room on the Broom trail at Anglers Country Park. You can purchase activity packs from the Visitor’s Centre for £2. From the centre you’ll follow the trail and find all the story sculptures of this much loved Julia Donaldson book!!
The route is fine for normal buggies but the path does get a bit muddy!

Peter’s Lost Peregrine at Pontefract Park
The trail follows a circular route on the 2 mile path around the race course starting at the playground. The wooden sculptures are large, great for climbing and taking photos. Each sculpture is accompanied by a plaque telling you the next part of the rhyming story!
The story follows Peter’s search for his lost Peregrine and he bumps into many animals along the way! As well as listening to the story, children can practise their animal names and the sounds they make!!
