We invite you to connect with nature with this FREE trail available to pick up at the Welcome Centre. This trail has been designed for Compton Verney by Rachel Massey – an art and wellbeing specialist from Other Ways to Walk, and builds on new research showing that ‘connection with nature’ is more beneficial to wellbeing than just ‘contact with nature’.
We suggest that you allow around one hour for this activity, and be prepared to slow down and enjoy the journey. There is no right or wrong way to do it, just take your time to pause and consider each phrase, follow the invitations one by one and do what feels right to you.
