We had a great day last Saturday when Forbidden Corner’s grand wizard Stoln Cairngorm and his pet dragon Dreygo visited. Dreygo behaved very well and managed to go the entire day without eating any children (a personal best)
To celebrate the release of two new books for ‘The Forbidden Corner Adventures’ series, author Steven Bruns will be hosting a signing session on Saturday 13th July.
The Forbidden Corner’s very own grand wizard Stoln Cairngorm will be here with us aswell and he has promised to bring along his pet dragon Dreygo. He has assured us that Dreygo will be on his best behaviour and will be fed before he meets any children. Dreygo will be making serveral appearances throughout the afternoon with a few breaks in between.
We will also have facepainting available 12-4pm.

We are very proud of our gardening team at The Forbidden Corner and to reward them for doing such a great job we sent them to BBC’s Gardeners World last week. Tom met a couple of his heroes, Nick Bailey and Adam Frost. They had a great time and hopefully picked up a few new ideas for our gardens along the way.

The Forbidden Corner has delighted and continues to delight many, many visitors of all ages each year and the attractions have been steadily increased over the years that it has been open to the public.
The latest new attraction, has met with the disapproval of the Yorkshire Dales National Park Authority who served a notice requiring its removal. Their objection seems to be based upon a fear that the appearance of the Tower will confuse visitors who may mistake the building that has been constructed with the genuine old buildings that are nearby. The Parks Authority are also concerned that the Tower will interfere with views up and down the Dale.
On the 20th of August 2018, a government planning inspector informed us that we had lost our appeal and that the Tower would have to be demolished to an acceptable height, which would mean we are only left with the bottom archway.
We would like to demonstrate to the Planning Authority that the public and families are in favour of keeping the Tower and that it will help to further promote the attraction and surrounding area.
