The sensory trail
This trail takes visitors on a sensory stroll which incorporates five tactile and acoustic sculptures which you can touch, listen and sit on. All created from green oak which have either fallen naturally or had to be cut as part of pollard restoration work. A trail leaflet is available from the information point or a PDF can be sent by email.
Accessibility at Stoke Common
Parking is extremely limited at Stoke Common and unfortunately there is no disabled parking available. Whilst many of the paths have a compacted hoggin surface and are relatively flat it might be difficult to access the site with wheelchairs, mobility scooter and pushchairs.
