The Woodland Trust is developing a Hidden Secrets Trail at Great Knott Wood near Lake Windermere. The site has a variety of ancient woodland features and is undergoing restoration. The project aims to:
- Inspire an understanding of ancient woodland and why it is important.
- Educate people about the restoration process.
- Educate people about woodland species.
- Help people discover the hidden natural heritage connected to the sites.
The trail will begin at an old yew tree voiced by Brian Blessed which will welcome visitors by talking to them, greeting them and inviting them to explore the wood.
This interactive audio exhibit will be triggered by the visitor approaching and, because it is sited in an outdoor environment, we will be sourcing hardware that is robust and suitable for the outdoor environment.
