The Children’s Trail
The Leighton-Linslade Children’s Trail is NOW LIVE on the Buzzard Trails app!
The Leighton–Linslade Children’s Trail is a public trail of 22 artworks celebrating children’s stories for little people, with big imaginations, to explore.
The Children’s Trail is partly inspired by the books of Mary Norton, who lived in the town as a child and set The Borrowers in The Manor House, now Leighton Middle School.
A free activity map and pencil is available from the Leighton Buzzard Library on Lake Street, The White House on Hockliffe Street or you can download the map and take the trail straight away!
