SPRING has sprung at a popular attraction near Stone where families are invited to enjoy a feast of Easter treats.

The Trentham Estate’s spring/summer season began on Tuesday, meaning the estate is open every day of the week for visitors of all ages.

Hundreds of thousands of spring bulbs are already providing a vivid splash of colour in the gardens.

More magic is being provided this year by the Trentham Fairy Trail, a series of 15 sculptures dotted around the mile-long lake, woodland and garden. Eagle-eyed visitors who spot all 15 could win a Trentham Annual Ticket for their efforts.
