We decided to challenge ourselves to complete the full walk as we really wanted to see the stained glass towards the end. This may have been a mistake! It was very steep in places and I found it hard going. I thought it was great...More

This was a great walk through the Forest with some interesting things to look at. You can take some of the short cuts to cut down the size of the walk and the time. Easy to follow and well worth a visit

This is a lovely route to walk, if a little bit long. I was surprised to see people wearing 'slippy' shoes, as it's very muddy and hilly, so waking boots are a must!!

Sheltered from the wind and rain. The trail is in a country walk, and it has other facilities such as Go Ape, a café, a climbing wall. The sculpture trail is easy to follow, and it has big open spaces.

A good walk, quite long but not over strenuous as no big hills. Very interesting and there's a good cafe and toilets. More poo bins would be good so responsible doggy owners didn't have to carry "the bag" most of the way round!

Visited many times as my sister lived in lydney. I was informed by her that many scenes from Star Wars was filmed there. It is an amazing place and if you're quite you may see wild boar running around.

This is a great place for a walk, whether alone or with a family. There's plenty of parking and different walking routes to follow. Signage was simple enough. I just wish it was a bit easier to find specific sculptures. The map we had only...More
