Sefton Snail Trail

Starting up again Monday, 16th August!


Get outside, find snails and win prizes!

Working with our friends at Green Sefton, Safe Regenerations, Canal & River Trust, Rimrose Valley Friends and

St Luke’s Community Gardens.


  How it works:

  1. Get a map for a trail route (see links)

  2. Find the snails and their secret letters!

  3. Make the letters into a secret phrase and send that to us electronically or via post!

  4. Win prizes! You’ll be entered into a prize draw if you send us a secret phrase. If you complete every trail, you are guaranteed a prize!

*If you are using the printable maps, you can drop them off at:
Mons Square – Bootle Strand
StoryHouse – Crosby Village


If you complete all the trails, you are guaranteed a prize!
If you submit the secret phrase for a trail, you will be entered into our prize draw, when we’ll decide more lucky winners! The more trails you complete, the more times you’re entered into the prize draw!


Whilst we have aimed to make each trail as accessible and safe as possible for you, please do take care on each of trails and remember that you do so at your own risk. In Another Place can not be liable for any injuries or accidents occurring while on a trail.  


Whilst you’re walking the snail trail routes, please keep an eye out for any snails which appear to be damaged and send an email to with some details of the snail so that we can get it back up and running in no time!
