This year saw the trail reach new spooky heights, with the help of 10 actors from the University of Plymouth. Haunting sounds of a howling werewolf and a ghostly steam train kept people on edge as they walked the candlelit trail.
All the actors were dedicated to their task of giving the children a fright, and it was difficult to know whether Dracula, the Grim Reaper, the Witches, the Mummy, or Frankenstein were the most frightening. The Litter Ghoul warned children about the penalty of dropping litter so well that several parents felt that message had hit home.
The children were particularly terrified of the Troll, played by one of our regular volunteers, Jim Bloomfield, as he roared and refused to let people cross his bridge.
Despite the rain, everyone had an excellent time. Now all we have to do is figure out how we can make it even scarier next year!
