Walking In The Forest Of Dean

Product Description
Maximum quantity available reached.

Guidebook to 25 walks in the Forest of Dean, between the Severn and Wye, from 4-mile routes to all-day sections of long-distance trails such as the Offa's Dyke Path and Gloucestershire Way, this guide is ideal for exploring the forest and its history and includes the information needed for walkers of all abilities to explore this ancient area.

The 25 walks in this guidebook range from relatively simple half-day strolls to challenging full-day excursions along parts of the three long-distance trails which thread their way through the area. With the exception of these longer routes, which will take a full day and require a good level of fitness, almost all of the routes are circular walks and generally they can comfortably be completed in half a day. The walks are described in four sections, covering the western ridges above the gorge of the River Wye; the forested ridges and valleys of central Dean; the eastern ridges together with the lowlands between the Forest and the Severn; and the long-distance trails.

 

Hemmed in by two major rivers, the Severn and the Wye, the Forest of Dean is truly a land apart, with a distinctive landscape and a unique cultural identity. Encircling ridges and forested slopes give the central Forest a secretive quality, while the ridges above the Wye gorge and the Severn Vale offer sensational views and easy walking.

Historically annexed as a Royal Forest since before the Norman Conquest, it remained a protected hunting ground as well as a site for coal-mining and ironworks from Roman times to the Industrial Revolution. Now, the combination of secretive forests, rolling farmland and ridges above the Wye gorge and the Severn Vale provide excellent paths and spectacular views.

 

The result is a guidebook that offers all the information walkers need to enjoy a wide range of walking among the rolling countryside of the Forest of Dean.

 

  • 21 day walks and 4 linear routes along long-distance trails, right across the Forest
  • illustrated with OS map extracts
  • with notes of historical and natural interest along the way

 

  • Seasons
    walks can be enjoyed in every season, with the central forest providing shelter on windy days
  • Centres
    accessible from Gloucester, Lydney and Chepstow, while the key centres within the Forest of Dean itself are Coleford and Cinderford
  • Difficulty
    none of the routes should present any technical difficulties, although all of them require basic route-finding skills and the walks following part of long-distance trails are challenging full-day expeditions; many follow clear forest tracks and paths across farmland
  • Must See
    iconic hills (such as May Hill), forested slopes, coal and iron-making sites with furnaces and ponds, sensational views, picturesque landscapes and a rich cultural and social history
