Englefield Estate's Snowman trail is back
Englefield Estate's popular free festive Snowman Trail has returned after its successful launch in 2021.
This year's trail started on Tuesday, December 20, and will run until Thursday, January 5, 2023.
There are 19 snowmen to discover along a nine-mile trek through the woodland around Mortimer, Mortimer West End, Silchester and Burghfield Common.
Each five-foot wooden snowman was hand crafted using sustainably sourced timber and decorated with festive designs by local children.
Children and their families are encouraged to share their photos on social media using the hashtag #EnglefieldSnowmen
