Blakeney - Oldcroft - Allaston - Oakenhill Wood - Blakeneyhill Woods

A relatively easy ramble through this historic forest, using routes of disused railways and forestry tracks. A few gentle climbs are rewarded by fine views and only three stiles! You may wish to spend an hour at the Forest Steam Railway, longer if the trains are running.

Please note that both bridges across the river Lyd are in place. The second one, which was reported as closed as unsafe, has been replaced. A small plaque says "Designed and built by the Forest of Dean Ramblers 2014"

With thanks to Mr NS Read. June 2008 update: Waymark 16 - The whole path has been fenced off both sides with no stiles either left or right. Continue to the top of the path, keeping two cottages on the left (one named Danby Cottage). Continue on path until you reach a metal road. Turn left down this road to Danby Lodge (waymark 18).

Geoff Mullet - I’ve spoken to the forestry commission who say that the car park was closed for a couple of days this month to allow them to remove some dangerous trees. They have assured me that the cp is normally open all year. Hope that helps, I think Mr Richards was just unlucky.

I visited the car park on the 4th of December 2007 for the start of this walk and found it was closed.
