Serpentine Wood - Alphabet Trail Family Walk
The Alphabet Trail through Serpentine Woods in Kendal is a wonderful walk for all the family.
....before you begin a short history of theSerpentine Wood.
These Woods were planted around 1790. Before that the area was fell-land which was owned by the Crown and known as 'Dob Freer' - Cumbrian tongue for 'free land'. It was during the Victorian era that walls were built to enclose the woodland and garden areas were created so that the people of Kendal could enjoy the area for public recreation.
The snaking of the pathways which now wind through the magnificent beech woodland gave the area its current name.
Follow the alphabet trail from Queens Road in Kendal, along the woodland path in Serpentine Woods. Please do take care as the surface is uneven and may be slippery.
Feel free to print off the Alphabet walk above, however we recommend that you get your own copy of the Alphabet Walk from Kendal Library or Kendal tourist information (housed in Kendal Town Hall).
The official printed Alphabet walk, has a clear map showing locations of each 'letter' in addition to how many paces it is between one 'exhibit' and the next. It also has a check-box so that kids can tick off each letter as they find it.
