CELEBRITY news presenter Natasha Kaplinsky enjoyed a break in the early July rain to open a new one-mile woodland trail at Wilderness Wood near Hadlow Down.
After cutting the green ribbon, Natasha took her family and dogs on the first-ever guided tour around the new trail route.
Despite heavy rain during days beforehand, the inaugural walk was luckily blessed with a ray of sunshine and walkers exploring the trail’s picturesque paths, bridges and steps built up a healthy appetite for an organic lunch in the wood’s timber-framed Barn Cafe.
Natasha said: “I’ve been coming to Wilderness Wood for years and there’s always something new to see or do.
“It’s great to have this resource close by as a constant source of activities in the great outdoors. The trail is a wonderful way to explore the woodland in a new way. I wish Joanna and Jonathan Yarrow and their team the best of luck in all their exciting plans over the coming months and years.
The new trail is now open for visitors to explore.
