Trowbridge Town Council Nature Trail
Have you really explored Trowbridge Park? As this is Go Wild week we had to share our Trowbridge Ted Off the Beaten Track Trail. You can even take the footpath from the park right into Biss Meadows Country Park, its Trowbridge’s best kept secret! How many different wild animals can you identify as you travel round the park and the wider Beat the Street Map?

Woodland Walks
With autumn in full flow why not take the time to visit Green Lane Woods. This wood is a Wiltshire Wildlife Trust nature reserve, so plenty of opportunities to identify the creatures from the Off the Beaten Track Trail. It is an ancient woodland predominately made up of oak trees with coppicing. There is also a wild flower meadow. Its particularly good as a bird and butterfly habitat.
