A valley walk that brings you face to face with a giant toad

News | Published:

IF you go down to Waterworks Valley woods today, you're in for a big surprise.

A very big, toad-shaped surprise, created by willow sculptor Michelle Caine and Alcindo Pinto, a local naturalist who also works with willow.

After teaming up with the National Trust for Jersey, the pair have just put the finishing touches to a trail of willow sculptures that can be followed along a woodland path in Waterworks Valley.

The sculptures along the way depict the various life stages of the Jersey crapaud, from a dome that symbolises a pond, complete with spawn, to tadpoles and the adult toad.

The route, which is around one kilometre, will lead to the 12-ft-high willow sculpture of the crapaud.
