West Stow > Beowulf and Grendel Trail

 

 

THE EXCITING NEW ADVENTURE TRAIL LAUNCHES THIS AUGUST BANK HOLIDAY WEEKEND!

Tale and Trail

A family adventure, or a gentle stroll in the park: this wonderful nature trail has been inspired by the ancient saga of Beowulf and Grendel and takes you on a journey through parts of the unique Breckland landscape including, Heathland - where you will meet the sleeping Dragon - woodlands and lake settings. There are six large themed carved sculptures that capture not only the story but your imagination about life in the region 1,500 years ago. The trail gives an insight into the Anglo-Saxons and also explains more about the plants, wildlife and impact we have had on the landscape over generations. The trial has specially designed information points to help you find out more, plus, a Beowulf and Grendel Trail pack that can be purchased from the Visitor Centre, with Rune quiz, map, and activities for all the family.
