CALKE Abbey's trial play space has proved a real hit with children this summer.

The Calke Explore! project boosted the park's appeal during the summer holidays.

A shady area of the Poker Leys woodland was transformed into a temporary play space using natural installations. These included a giant bird's nest, climbing trunks, adventure trails and willow dens.
