Welcome to the home of the world-famous Snark. If you are very lucky you may catch a glimpse, but it’s very rare that anyone gets to see it. But not to worry. There are lots of other things to see in this beautiful nature reserve – small animals, insects and beautiful plants and wild flowers.

But don’t you go straying from the paths. The signs that say danger are real. There are holes in the ground that can swallow you up and of course the high points are the most dangerous of all. A person could fall to their death up there.

If the railway gets built, this will all be destroyed and wouldn’t that be a terrible shame, a disaster in fact. Mr Bellman would be very unhappy, as would lots of other people. Mel and Jeff don’t care though. They are just here to measure up.

Brilliant and often hilarious, Just the Place for a Snark is one of my favourite Theatrephonic audio plays so far.
