Help needed to clear footpaths.

Are you fed up with struggling through brambles and thickets when you are out walking the paths in our beautiful area? If so, why not come and help clear the pathways on Saturday 27th November 2pm to 4pm. Please wear stout shoes,gloves and please bring own hand tools- sorry no power tools. We are aiming to clear footpath FHE21 which goes from Bailey Lane to Byway FHE20 and then clearing the top part of BywayFHE20.

FHE20 is the Bywaythat runs parallel on the left-hand side to the road when going from the Hewelsfield Crossroads to Brockweir Bridge. Meet where the Byway starts which is just after the small crossroads near to Richard Richardson’s livery yard (Grid refSO555 022).It runs downhill in a generally westerly direction tore-join the main carriageway above the Pinewood Studios.You don’t need to come for the whole period just come and do what you can.

If you have any queries, please message me or contact me on 07881951137

Foresters’ Forest programme survey


November 2021

We’d love your feedback!

Please could you spare a few minutes to complete our final Foresters’ Forest programme survey:

  • We ask a few questions about the Forest of Dean, and its built, natural and cultural heritage.
  • Your answers will help us find out what difference the Foresters' Forest Landscape Partnership Programme has had on the heritage and people of the Forest of Dean, over the past 5 years. We will be publishing a final report that will be shared locally in the New Year.
  • Completing the survey gives you the chance to enter our prize draw. There are two great prizes on offer!
