Bookworm explorers trail

Family trail, £1 suggested donation per trail

Mill-y the bookworm needs your help. Her friends have got lost around the Mill looking for their favourite books. Help Mill-y track down her missing friends to earn yourself a bookworm sticker.

Share your favourite book

As well as finding a new page turner, why not share your favourite? We will be inviting our visitors to share their favourite book by writing it down and adding it to our literary line of inspiration. Books are special to people for different reasons and we would love to know why yours is special to you.
