A fun and easy walk which offers a look at the wonderful, once industrial Forest
of Dean and maybe the odd wild boar or two on the way! Our walk starts at Speculation
car park and follows the seasonally boggy paths through the heart of the forest.
It’s here that we pass an old slag tip now disguised by nature as a hill with trees
and accompanied by a old abandoned mine. It’s then into the mixed woodland on paths
and ‘steady rides’ (old disused train tracks) through to the hanging cathedral window,
one of the many sculptures to be found in this part of the forest. The final stretch
takes us past Speech house, the tree swing and the Giant’s chair sculptures on our
return to Speculation car park crossing a beautiful countryside stream carved through
the trees, a palatable feast for the avid walker.
