Someone once described a visit to the Trap Grounds as “like entering another world, a place full of secrets and surprises”. Listen for the plop of a water vole as you walk along the boardwalk … sit in the wildflower meadow and wait for a fox to saunter past … let inspiration come to you. Then send us your thoughts, in poetry or prose.
