sculpture trail walk

As today was a UK Bank Holiday, I decided that it would be good to have a proper family day out. So we packed a few provisions and headed off down to the Forest of Dean. We had a super day; the weather was ideal for walking and we saw some fantastic sculptures. Click here to go to the Sculpture Trail website to find out more about the sculptures and artists who created them.

an iconic symbol of the Sculpture Trail - 'Place' by Magdalena Jetelova

'Fire and Water Boats' by David Nash

probably my favourite - 'Iron Road' by Keir Smith. This runs along a disused railway embankment. Each of the 20 sleepers is carved with a unique and individual design

'Cathedral' by Kevin Atherton

If you're ever in Gloucestershire and you fancy an interesting walk, then I highly recommend you pay a visit to the Sculpture Trail near Speech House, Forest of Dean.
