A FUN-FILLED adventure attracted 250 visitors to Runcorn’s Norton Priory Museum.

Children were challenged to become cryptozoologists and follow a trail to find abominable snowmen.

Wearing hunter-style hats, they set out in fake snow and discovered Big Foot teeth.

They studied Yeti footprints and smells before making their own craft creatures and decorating gingerbreads.

Learning and community manager Susan Humphreys said: “We are pleased our visitors had such an ‘ice time learning about these mysterious creatures.

“The edible snowmen looked really tasty and most were devoured well before going home time.”

Visitors are invited to ‘Meet the Birds’ when Professor David Norman and Merseyside Ringing Group will demonstrate bird ringing and talk about the many local birds found Norton Priory.

This event takes place on Sunday, March 2, at 8.30am. To book, call 01928 569895 or e-mail info@nortonpriory.org.
