The Forest of Dean is our land, the land between two rivers, a land on the edge, isolated and bypassed. Shaped by its geology and its physical isolation this is the story of a hard-working, self reliant community, a cradle of industry entwined with a stronghold for nature. Our forest, our community, the Foresters’ Forest.

Welcome to the Foresters’ Forest. We are a Heritage Lottery Funded Landscape Partnership programme, formed from an association of partner organisations and local community groups within the Forest of Dean.

Our aim is to raise awareness and participation in the built, natural and cultural heritage that makes our Forest special.

There are lots of things to see, do, explore and get involved in, so we hope you’ll come and join us in a range of community based activities, volunteering opportunities and projects.
