Little Oxplorers Fairy Door Trail

Little Oxplorers Fairy Door Trail

Date of Adventure: 2 Aug, 2023

Our annual Fairy Door Trail is back at the Trap Grounds Nature Reserve runs throughout August. Every summer for the past 5 years we have put on a magical trail for the whole community to enjoy and every year we have more doors, more fairies, more fairy post-boxes (your little ones LOVE these!) and more magic sprinkled around to enjoy.

We receive so many messages about our trail and it’s such a highlight of our year – this is our way of saying thank you for your continued support, we so appreciate it.

Did you


The Oxford Canal starts at Hythe Bridge, just a few minutes from the city centre and railway station. Built over 200 years ago, dug by hand, it flows north out of the city, through Banbury, and all the way to Coventry.

Fancy buying me a ko-fi?

Want to support my work?

Feel free to buy me a (strong!) coffee, it will help fuel my adventures near and far. Support can come in many form though: sharing my website in your school WhatsApp group or liking a Facebook post is equally appreciated.
