Phoebe the Apprentice Ranger: Production shots

This week Coney launched a brand new family adventure: Phoebe the Apprentice Ranger, commissioned by Polesden Lacey National Trust. Opening day was fully booked with families, and we’re delighted so many people came along to share the adventure and help Phoebe with her ranger missions in the grounds.

Introducing Phoebe the Apprentice Ranger and her boss, Lenny. 

It’s been a wonderful journey making this project over the last few weeks, with endless things to discover about Polesden Lacey, the natural world and the Countryside Code. So we thought we’d share a few pictures of our favourite places and pictures, along with a few things we’ve learnt about them.

The 400-year-old woodland at Polesden Lacey might seem quiet, but there’s a lot going on under the surface – did you know trees can communicate through their roots?




The long grass in Bagden Down is full of life – it’s got even more biodiversity per m2 than the rainforest


Building dens might look straightforward, but it's a surprisingly tricky feat of balance and judgment! Try it for yourself on one of Phoebe's missions

There are so many secret spots to discover in the gardens and beyond, like the Chalk Pits where you’ll find yourself surrounded by butterflies



The Bird Hide is a perfect place to look out for different species – the quieter you are, the more you’ll see


You can play Phoebe the Apprentice Ranger at Polesden Lacey National Trust from now until 26th August, at various times from Wednesday – Sunday each day. The adventure is included in entry to Polesden Lacey; find out more here, and perhaps we’ll see you soon!
