Fright night at the farm
There’s something spooky down at Nocton Wood – join us this Halloween and discover the story of Victoria.
Follow the path of Victoria’s final journey and discover the gruesome tale of her untimely end in the ancient woodland where her ghost remains to this day.
A spooky wander for Halloween night, look out for the bats speeding through the trees and swooping overhead.
Spot The Nine Brethren – an ancient oak that once marked the boundary of the Augustinian Priory that stood nearby.
Once a main road through the wood, you’ll walk in the footsteps of highwaymen and monks, and follow the trails of lords and ladies making their way through the once dangerous area.
What will happen?
Arrive at The Hive and climb aboard our tour trailer from 4 pm to enjoy a tractor ride down to Nocton Wood. Here, you’ll be greeted with tales of the wood and the terrifying story of Victoria.
You’ll be given a map to help you find your way through the wood – a 30-40 minute trail through the darkness. Look out for a host of resident wildlife, from deer to bats.
You’ll meet the highwayman and other creepy characters on your way, so keep your wits about you or be in for a fright.
Spot the letters hidden amongst the trees to crack the code and earn a treat at the end of the night.
Once your walk is over, you’ll jump aboard the trailer for a ride back to The Hive where you’ll be able to enjoy hot drinks, hot dogs, and jacket potatoes, included in your ticket price.
50% of your ticket price will be donated to Lincs and Notts Air Ambulance.
