There will be a range of children’s Easter activities on offer at Lyveden New Bield this weekend.

Tomorrow is Good Friday and children can come along and create their own imaginary world in a miniature tray garden.

The event runs from 2pm until 4pm and the cost is £1.50 per child.

There will be an Easter trail throughout the weekend, and on Saturday and Sunday children can have their faces painted.

The Easter trail costs £1.50 per person.

Begun by Sir Thomas Tresham to symbolise his Catholic faith, Lyveden remains incomplete and virtually unaltered since work stopped on his death in 1605.

Visitors can discover the mysterious garden lodge and explore the Elizabethan garden with its spiral mounts, terracing and canals.

There is also a new orchard and a circular path that meanders through beautiful meadows.
