GIANT Lego animals to bring wild adventure trail to life for Manchester kids

Lego fans will be able to set their sights on giant animals built from thousands of the colourful bricks at a wild adventure trail.

An enormous otter, a kingfisher and a flamingo will be among the models forming part of the trail at Martin Mere Wetland Centre.

Around half an hour's drive from Manchester, the site, in Burscough, gives families the perfect opportunity to get close to nature.

Depending on the season you can spot everything from ducklings to migrating swans.

There's loads of fun to be had outside, with a muddy meadow and play areas for kids of all ages, and at weekends and in school holidays, they can join in activities in the craft room between 1pm and 4pm.

But it's the Lego trail that many visitors flock to see and this year it will kick-off on May 9 and run until June 24 - with three new models joining this year's crowd.
Once families have completed the trail, they can collect a certificate from the information desk, before making their own model at the Lego brick play table.

Lego brick workshops will also be available to book online from February 10.

Other events taking place at the site this year include Dusty’s North West Puddle Jumping Championships this February.

The event - which costs 50p to enter on top of usual admission fees and is open to all ages - is on at 2pm daily from February 10 to 18.

On top of that there are daily feeds and talks including a chance to meet the site's three cheeky Asian otters. You watch them forage, swim, rest, sleep and bath in the sunshine.

The first Lego animal trail opened at the site in 2015, with 10 individually-designed Lego brick characters on display.

The trail is included in the usual admission fee - adults £11.45, children £6.13, under fours free, or a family ticket for two adults and two children £29.90.
