Brighton U3A walk in the Forest of Dean

Dean Valley Manor

18 members of Brighton U3A visited the Wye Valley and Forest of Dean on a walking holiday. They chose to stay at Dean Valley Manor (formerly Lindors). Our guide was asked to find a flat walk in the Forest so a walk around the Speech House woods was devised for them.

Woorgreens Lake

A visit to the Sculpture Trail “window” and Woorgreens Lake was accompanied by a cacophony of calls from resident geese. The brand-new Woorgreens gravel path will proove invaluable to visitors in wetter weather. Finally a visit to Speech House Lake rounded off the trip. The guests were well used to seeing bluebells – which they said appear earlier in the year back home in Brighton.
