Since 1984 The Forest of Dean Sculpture Trust has raised funds to commission artists to celebrate and help us appreciate and understand the life of the forest.
The Sculpture Trust works in partnership with the Forestry Commission which maintains the sculptures and trail.
The sculptures are inspired by the forest - its trees, wildlife and industrial past.
They are mostly constructed from natural material from the Dean - wood, stone and iron. The sculptures are interspersed along the trail through majestic oaks and towering Scots pine trees
Melissa's Swing is currently down for repairs.
A Sculpture Trail leaflet is available containing details of the sculptures for £1 from the Forest of Dean's Coleford office. The leaflet is also available on site at Beechenhurst Lodge from Forest of Dean Adventure.
Some of the Sculptures can be accessed with a power assisted wheelchair, please ring the the Forestry Comission, Tel 01594 833057, or e-mail using the link provided for further access information.
