Salisbury Discovery Nature Trail

It has been revealed that the 'Brown Hare' sign that appeared last October near Hudson's Field is part of a new Discovery Nature Trail devised by Salisbury City Council.

"The trail is made up of 15 posts with special zinc plaques that you can create a rubbing from. These posts are dotted around our parks and open spaces which may take you to places you have not visited or knew existed.

"We have highlighted only a few of the species we have surrounding us and hope to update the trail in the future to provide more information on different species from insects and birds to trees.

"The trail will take approximately a day to complete in one trip. We would encourage you to make a day of it to ensure you fully enjoy the sights, sounds and smells to its greatest potential. Why not take a picnic with you to enjoy in one of the parks or open spaces.

Complete the trail during different seasons and different weather conditions to see what changes you can spot.

"We recommend you wipe the plaque before you complete the rubbing. Salisbury City Council will not be sanitising the plaques."

An illustrated leaflet with details of the other plaques included in the trail can be downloaded below but note that the map included in the leaflet is incomplete. A revised version of the map can be downloaded separately:
