The Forest of Dean is a special place, described as 'a land apart, between two rivers', the Severn to the east and the Wye to the west.
This walks begins at St Briavels Castle, which was the administrative centre of the Forest of Dean from the 12th Century, when it became a Royal Hunting Forest.
The walk takes you through ancient woodlands that were used to build ships for the Royal Navy and you pass by spots where there is evidence of charcoal-burning pits from the era when the Forest of Dean was a centre for iron ore production.
