Halloween trail at Dunstable Downs Bedfordshire

Mrs Greville, owner of Polesden Lacey, buried all her beloved dogs in a pet cemetery here many years ago. This Halloween the hounds of Polesden aren’t resting peacefully in their graves. They are on the rampage!

Each of the Polesden hounds was buried with their most precious plaything - but their toys have gone missing.

The dogs can’t rest until they’ve been reunited with their favourite toys and we need your help. Are you up to the challenge?
