The Dedham Treasure Trail starts at:
We have three super duper themed Clubs for your child to enjoy as part of their Treasure Trail experience.
Perfect for 4-8 year olds, the concept behind the Clubs is that your child will get a bundle of goodies to excite them about their forthcoming Trail experience, something to keep them entertained whilst travelling to and from the Trail, and something to be given on completion of the Trail as a keepsake.

Before you set off on your awesome adventure, there are a few things you need to know...
The route is friendly for wheelchair users and pushchairs.
Bring your four-legged friends along! The route includes a park where your dog can have a run around, but we recommend leads where the Trail comes to roads.
The closest long stay pay and display car park to the Trail start point is the Mill Lane car park (CO7 6DH), just a minute walk away.
There are some fantastic events in Dedham’s calendar, all of which are great times to visit this beautiful village. However, you may find that some of the clues on this Trail may become obstructed or difficult to access on these occasions.
There are public toilets available towards the middle of the Trail, and the route passes several pubs and a few cafes along the way. The park at Clue 13 is the perfect spot for a picnic!
Why not make a day of it and visit The Munnings Art Museum or Dedham Art and Craft Centre? You could even explore the area from a different vantage point by hiring a boat at taking a trip along the River Stour!
