Exploring Our Forest

Explore our Forest above and below ground, whether virtually through the internet, through improved access for all abilities at key sites or using new technologies such as mobile phone apps.

Our film celebrates how we made this happen:

Explore virtually or physically, the choice is yours!

Through six projects we have helped local people, as well as visitors to the Forest, explore the Forest’s heritage physically and virtually. The Hidden Heritage apps are a modern way of helping people to visit and make their way through the Forest and discover views, scenes or facts about the Forest that they did not know. To help people explore the Foresters’ Forest further we have also created an on-line map on this website.

Get involved:

  • Download one of the Hidden Heritage apps and explore our heritage while navigating the Family Cycle trail or walking around Coleford and Cinderford (available free through the Apple or Android app stores)
  • Explore the land below your feet, the geology of the Forest, through our free Geo Heritage of the Dean app. Providing 11 GPS guided walk routes in the Forest of Dean.
  • Volunteer to be a guide accompanying people on a mobility scooter for the Walking with Wheels project
  • Take part in Heritage Open Days or find out more about heritage sites in Bream, following the Bream Heritage Walk.
“We aim to secure the knowledge we reveal through this theme so that we can use it to share, inspire and enlighten our neighbours, our children and visitors to our Forest, making this knowledge accessible to all.”
