The Forest of Dean.

Local Walks



Rambling In and around the Forest.

The New Year's Day Walk.

Assembled together, at the very civilised hour of 11:00, some 52 walkers at the start of the Forest of Dean Group of the Ramblers Association's New Years Day Walk. It was raining a bit and we also had three dogs in attendance. We started and finished at the Speculation Car Park (just off the B4234 at Grid Reference: 612135) and the whole walk was a shade under 4 miles and is about about 2-½ miles of very easy going.

The complete walk was from Speculation Car Park out onto the cycle trail, turning right towards Beechenhurst Lodge but traversing cross-country up to Crabtree Hil where these two stones stood in lonely isolation and then down onto a bit of the Sculpture Trail and, on a rather roundabout route, back to the car park and home.

Go Home.
