Woodchester Wednesday

Event starts: 11 August 2010
Come along and join in the fun at Woodchester Mansion on our popular Woodchester Wednesdays

What's happening today?


We're planning to make (and test !) a life size working model of one of the mansion's gargoyles and there will be a trail to find all the strange carved creatures around the mansion. You'll be able to make and take home a clay gargoyle of your own design. - follow the trail and make your own ugly creature to take home.
