Hidden Secrets of the Forest of Dean

'The Giant's Chair' and the Speech House
‘Place’ an exhibit on the Forest of Dean Sculpture Trail by Magdalena Jetelova. This ‘Giant’s Chair’ has stood since 1986.

The Forest of Dean is so much more than a glorious expanse of trees. This 20 mile tour reveals some of the Forest’s hidden secrets – royal, industrial, artistic, and natural. As we dodge the free-roaming sheep, we will pass the Verderers Court, nature reserves, former quarries, iron works, railways and coal mines and much more. In spring see the brilliant displays of bluebells and other wild flowers. In summer – see the trees in all their majesty. In autumn – see the amazing colours as the trees turn from green to red, bronze and gold and in the winter see the Forest stripped of its camouflage displaying the mighty oaks the like of which were used for Nelson’s fleet. We might even catch a glimpse of a wild boar!
