Acorn Bank's population of Great Crested Newts, the largest of Britain’s native newts and a species that is in decline across Europe, are the stars of the show this spring. Join the National Trust team in the sunken garden for a fascinating look into the world of newts – they’ll be chatting through all things newt and doing newt related crafts.
