"We have had a fabulous day at George's Barn and The Tangled Trail: a truly memorable experience! We really appreciate all the hard work and planning that went into making the day run so well with such a variety of experiences.
All the adults were very impressed and the children want to bring their Mums and Dads to show them - praise indeed! We can't wait for our next visit!."
I am delighted to announce that The Tangled Trail at Georges Barn, Peene is now open to visitors.
Please click on the picture below to watch the first film by Nick Paine and then come and see the real thing!
The Tangled Trail, George's Barn and The Railway Museum are open week-ends and Bank Holidays from 10am until 5pm.
We look forward to seeing you there . . .
Timothy Tangleweed who resides in the barn, has been given the job of Caretaker of The Trail and Ferdinand Frog has been made Trail Treasurer.

Throughout 2013, I was working on the eighteen Sculptures which you will find on the Trail, a Giant Jig-Saw measuring 4' x 4' and a hand-painted Map.
It's a relief to have completed this particular part of the project so that we can now get on with the next stages of developing the various areas of The Tangled Bank.
On a personal level, l am really enjoying watching and listening to visitors of different generations working together to use the map, instruction sheet and stickers during the hunt and returning with news of any undiscovered sculptures . . . !
The Trustees have created a lovely wooden platform around the woodland pond allowing us to use it for natural research adventures with our visitors. The dragonfly sculpture has been enjoying the new environment.
Clive Nuttman and l will be working with schools and visitors offering Pond Dipping, Bug Hunts, Seed Sowing and other activities designed to encourage people to re-discover the outdoors and connect with nature.
