Families are being invited to follow a Creeping Toad in a journey of discovery in the Peak District.

The Creeping Toad, storyteller and environmental art education leader Gordon MacLellan, will be helping families discover what formed the rocks and fossils of the national park at an event on Sunday.

Children will be able to explore the ancient upheavals of the earth and its hidden sea creatures as well as modelling rock-pools from millions of years ago.

The event will give an insight into life in Longdendale millions of years ago.

The Peak District National Park Authority said the free event is suitable for under-14s and runs from 1.30pm to 3.30pm at the Longdendale Environmental Centre, based in United Utilities’ Bottoms office at Tintwistle.

Bookings are preferable but not essential, on 01433 620373 or by email.

The event is part of Longdendale Wildlife Watch group’s summer activities, organised by the Peak District national park’s learning and discovery team and Derbyshire Wildlife Trust.
