Wokingham Rocks


Wokingham Rocks

Clicking on the photos enlarges them - usually.

While walking in Simons Wood one day last week we noticed a coloured pebble in a tree. Clearly it had been placed there deliberately. We examined it and were curious but thought little more about it. A few days later we saw a few more painted pebbles and then met a fellow dog walker and her little girl. They told us about Wokingham Rocks

On their website they say, This is a 'just for fun' community art activity where you can paint what you like on rocks and hide them around Wokingham.’

It has added a new dimension to our walks! It is fun for children and adults alike to paint and hide their works of ‘art’ and I think it’s something Frankie might like to try. We shall see!

Some have been painted by children, others by adults. On the back they have 'Wokingham Rocks', the date and a link to the Facebook group page.

  1. We saw more children in the woods today than we have ever seen and it can't have been just because it's the last day of half-term!

  4. What a wonderful idea! When children get familiar with a favourite walk that is the kind of thing that would bring some excitement back to it.

    1. I have never seen the woods so full of children at weekends . . . I overheard one parent saying to his child, 'No, you can't hide it in my back pocket.'
