Welly Walk 2020

Woodland adventure trail


Wednesday 19 August – Sunday 1 November 2020

We are really pleased to be able to re-open the Welly Walk this year. Please note that in order to meet social distancing guidelines, the trail is now one way from the Priory Church to the Cavendish Pavilion, each piece of equipment on the Welly Walk can only be used by one family at a time, please wait until the equipment is empty before using. Please also be sure to social distance while you are waiting. The Welly Walk will be disinfected daily, however we do recommend carrying hand sanitiser and washing your hands at the lavatories before and after using the Welly Walk.

Prepare for lots of fun and mud! Our woodland adventure trail leads you from the stepping stones to the Cavendish Pavilion. We would advise pre-booking a Bolton Abbey Car Park ticket for this activity.

Let your little ones put their balance skills to the test, scramble up nets, navigate the pole-to-pole and try their hardest to keep clean as they come down the slides! With many more obstacles in-between – it’s fun from start to finish!

This is a challenging adventure and some obstacles are not suitable for all age groups. Children must be supervised at all times.
