A toy manufacturer has created a pair of trails for a Norfolk nature reserve's summer event.

Wymondham-based Orchard Toys is collaborating with Pensthorpe, near Fakenham, for its summer event, Beasts and Beaks.  

Through bespoke activity booklets, the Mammoth Maths Hunt and Creature Hunt encourages children to put their detective hats on to decode some mystery words and discover facts about wildlife - all while playing in WildRootz, the eco award-winning play area.
