Seek out 24 black birds and the giant willow pie, Cromwell’s cannon, the fairly useless bridge, Lord Berners in a tree!, a giraffe, the fairy house, a troll and many birds and animal sculptures lurking among the trees. Less than 15 minutes walk from Faringdon Market Square The Tower is open from April to October on the 1st & 3rd Sundays of the month. The woodland is always open and entry is free.
