A group of walkers from Lindors Country House Hotel on a walk devised and led by a Forest of Dean and Wye Valley Tour Guide.

The Autumn sun shone throughout this all-day walk around the beautiful woodland of the central Forest of Dean. Several deer were spotted during the day. The walk was completed just as the sun dropped below the side of the Cannop Valley.

Hill 33 is the latest exhibit on the Forest of Dean Sculpture Trail. David Cotterell was inspired by “concertainer” units used by our armed forces to erect large defensive structures in Afganistan.

This sculture is the reverse of the process of the piling up of mining waste, then removing it at a later date.  Over 1,000 tonnes of waste was brought here to fill the containers and create this pyramid-like structure which is 11m high.

 This will eventually have bluebells and other forest plants adding to the attraction.
