A new year, a new victim, a new killer. Following last year’s crime caper, there’s a brand new outdoor mystery for you and your family to solve. The year is 1853 and, whilst the Sutherland’s are away visiting their London abode, Cliveden’s head butler has turned up dead on the estate. Mr Butter, a rather unsavoury character, was discovered fallen off his chair and smelling of whiskey, but how did he get there?

Follow the outdoors trail to solve the murder mystery. Costs £5.00 per trail and is suitable for children aged 8 years +. Dogs on leads are welcome. The trail runs from 10.30am – 3.30pm.
