Echo, Forest of Dean Sculpture Trail

The opening of 'Echo' on the Forest of Dean Sculpture Trail on Sunday 20th July 2008.

The Sculpture was designed by Annie Cattrell (far right). After many research visits to the Forest, Annie produced the work in Bristol. This resin based sculpture contains aluminium powder to produce just the effect Annie was looking for. It echos the quarry in which it sits. It also echos itself on each side with both ‘positive’ and ‘negative’ depictions of the face of the quarry.

The Forest of Dean Geomap

– was unveiled by Mark Harper M.P. and Deputy Gaveller John Harvey O.B.E. on May 3rd 2008. The Geomap was constructed by sculptor David Yeates at The Stenders, Mitcheldean before being assembled on site. The 900 square feet of rock strata depicted in the Geomap are built from samples of the rock they represent. The work is designed to be walked on. The discs represent the locations of iron and coal mines and quarries. The black lines represent coal seams and the white lines railway routes.

The Geomap is one of the features we visit on our Mallards Pike walk.
