National Trust's half-term events in the North East invite families to get messy and muddy


It might not mean much to families outside the region but the word 'plodge' is a familiar one in the North East and it has fond associations: mainly to do with getting messy.

And that's exactly what our local National Trust properties - from Northumberland to Sunderland - are inviting families to do over the upcoming February half-term.

It has drawn up a programme of events for the school holidays which encourage all ages to get out and about - and messy, muddy and back in touch with nature at the same time.  So that means digging out those wellies.

Besides the likes of enjoying a plodge in the mud at Gibside and making the sloppiest of mud pies at Seaton Delaval Hall, ideas include helping to plant 100,000 snowdrops at Wallington and building a bird box at Souter Lighthouse.

Here are its top seven suggestions for where to visit - and the venues' normal admission charges will apply.
