Riding tandem is just one of various unusual ways to enjoy the Forest of Dean, tucked away on the border between Wales and England. I have also wandered the forest’s rather cool Sculpture Trail, which makes a walk in the woods that bit more interesting.
Opened in 1986, the 3.5-mile trail lies in the centre of the forest, and is scattered with sizeable sculptures created by different artists – of which more are regularly added. The newest, David Cotterrell’s Hill33, is reminiscent of a Mayan temple rising from the trees and Annie Cattrell’s Echo is cast from 310-million year-old chunks of rock.
The trail encourages the walker to venture deeper into the woods, like Hansel and Gretel’s breadcrumb trail, but less evil.
