Forest of Dean Sculpture Trail

Established in 1986, this 4.5 mile long Sculpture Trail was one of the first to open in the UK. The Trail features sculptures created by artists to interpret the Forest environment and the history of this very unusual landscape. It provides a unique opportunity to walk through the woodlands and discover art along the way. Perfect for all ages and abilities, you don’t need to know about art to enjoy what you see.

Highlights on the trail include Cathedral, a 15ft high stained glass window suspended from the tree canopy enabling visitors to walk underneath, and Iron Road, twenty sleepers on a former railway line carved with images of the Forest. The sculptures are installed within the woodland to encourage you to seek them out. The posts with purple markers will direct you. If you want to make life easier for yourself you can buy a map at Beechenhurst Lodge.
