The Sculpture Trail in Broxbourne Woods is a relatively easy, approx. 1 mile circular walk, which starts in the Pembridge Lane car park. Throughout the walk there are a series of lifesize wooden sculptures of local inhabitants of the area over the last 2,000 years, including a Roman legionnaire, peasant woman, herdsman, and charcoal burner. There are also 'giant' sculptures of acorns and plants, and a lifesize sculpture of a female boar with piglets. There is also a lifesize sculpture of a large deer, which unlike the others is made of iron plates, and can only be viewed in full if you stand in a specific position.
The trail goes through mature woodland, consisting of both conifers and hardwood trees, and in Spring you might see bluebells. There are several other trails leading off the main Sculpture Trail, some of which have boardwalks over marshy ground. The sculpture trail itself is well defined and made from hard packed gravel, but the other trails are generally simple woodland paths, and can be very muddy.
There are no toilets, nor refreshments, but there are wooden seats at various points if you want to rest or take a picnic. As with anywhere really, don't leave anything on view while your car is left in the car-park! The trail is suitable for dog-walking, and though most dog owners are responsible be careful not to tread in any dog mess.
All in all a very interesting and scenic short walk.
