The Earth Story Trail is here!

The Earth Story Trail arrived and has been set up in Willow Field, Truro, this week.

Clint, Brian, Anita and work experience students, Rosie and Jack, helped assemble the signs and set them out on the field according to a scale that takes you on a walking tour of the Earth’s history, from it’s formation to the present day.

  • Sprint start: For the first 4,000+million years, each metre (about two large steps) will take you through 20 million years.
  • Slow motion recap: For the last 541 million years, each metre will take you through 10 million years.

Signs orientate you with your position on the trail and guide you through key events, conditions, facts, debates and trivia about the geological eon, era or period that you’ve reached.
