Sunday the 13th September 2009 saw the official opening of the ladybird trail once more.
First devised in the early 1980's, it was first called the Clayton fields trail. Sadly, through lack of maintenance, the route fell into some disrepair until 2005 when the PROSPECTS foundation took the trail under their wing.
The trail is devised to be picked up at any point, and can be walked in either a clockwise or anti-clockwise direction, with break off points along the way for people who may not have the time to do the full trail in one go.
The route is easily found without a map as Ladybird signs have been placed around the trail to point the way, as well as alternative routes which are also available. These signs can add to the fun, especially for children to find!!
The route uncovers some breathtaking scenic views along the way, such as this picture shows.
At the end of the walk, there is always time for a snooze while watching the sunset.............
The leaflet for this walk can be downloaded as a PDF file from here. Please not that you will need a PDF viewer on your computer, such as adobe PDF reader.
