There are 40 doors to find and they are all situated below the rugby pitch, around the pond and further down past the cricket pitch.
“It was a clear summer night when the fairies and elves join the park… if you look closely, you could see their wings sparkle and twinkle in the dark. They went to find their favourite tree… look high, look low and you will see the magic of the … fairy door tree…”
We would recommend creating a sheet to take with you with the numbers on then the children can fill in the names on the doors as they find them.
For those who don’t believe in Fairies take a trip to The Eco Fairy Village on The Billing in Rawdon. The idea is for people to add things to the village but use as little plastic as possible and try and keep it eco friendly. What could you add?
During lockdown, a local family have transformed Rodley Park by adding 160 BRILLIANT fairy doors to the park and surrounding woodland. Each door is individually named, numbered and hand-decorated, you really need to visit to understand how great the decorations to each door are.
*Tip before you go make a sheet with numbers 160 on and then children can write the names down aside each number as they find them.
They have also created a “Community Tree” where children and families can add their own fairy magic.
Follow Thornhill Drive, over the cattle grid until you enter the woods. Once in the woods, we took the first right to find the ‘Fairy Village’, follow the path until you see a sign directing you up a hill to the fairy village. Each individual village has been handcrafted and they all have a theme, they are BRILLIANT and you really need to visit to appreciate how good they are.
There is limited off road parking on Thornhill Drive (road down from Calverley Primary School)

Simon Dowling with the help of the local community has created two Fairy Door walks in Horsforth! There are 50 doors in Hunger Hills woods and 49 in Hawksworth wood. For more details join the Horsforth Fairy Doors Facebook group.
Hunger Hills – Park in the car park nearest the children’s playground at Hall Park and cross over the road and walk up the footpath entrance there. The doors are all in one specific area near the rope swing.
Hawksworth Woods – Park near the Bridge Inn and cross over into the woods there. The doors are along the footpath
