‘The Woodland Clan’ activity trail invites families to join the Purbeck beat of “beak, bone, feather and song” and help save Purbeck’s wildlife from destruction by the “Bigfoots”. This spectacular trail explores the wisdom of the animals through sculptures, activities, quizzes, storytelling and prizes.

5 July – 1 September 2021
£3 per trail (normal admission applies)
Explore the castle ruins and discover the creatures of the woodland clan. Can you complete the activities and collect your prizes along the way?

Based on the book by Annie Herridge, ‘The Woodland Clan’ is a story set in the Isle of Purbeck, a modern-day fable for today’s society. The animals’ peace and joy are ruined by the Big Foots and Small Foots – human adults and children – who leave rubbish and glass in the Woodland that kill Blackbird’s new-born chicks.

Distraught with grief, he cannot sing to herald the dawn of spring and so spring can’t be sprung. The animals plan an uprising on a Blood Moon to make the island fall into darkness. In that darkness, Big Foots and Small Foots listen to the voices of beak, bone, feather, and song that warn and awaken them to the damage they are causing to nature and to the world.

Book your visit
You don’t need to book your Woodland Clan activity trail, but we do advise that you book your visit in advance especially at busier times such as weekends, school holidays and bank holidays. Booking will provide access to Corfe Castle, not the Woodland Clan trail, which can be purchased on the day from Visitor Reception.
