All Saints, in Newland, is known locally as the Cathedral of the Forest because of it's proportions, history and setting, and it is well worth a detour for visitors to the Forest of Dean. The church was first established by Robert de Wakering (1215-1237). All the early builders of the church were important men in the affairs of the State, and this may help to explain the unusual size of the church. Indeed in 1305 Edward I added a small chapel (adjoining the south porch) and founded the chantry of King Edwards Service. The church comprises a west tower, nave with five arches, adjoining very large north and south aisles, south porch and chapels. There are many interesting monuments within the church including an effigy of Jenkin Wyrall, Forester of Fee (d. 1457), which shows interesting details of hunting costumes of that period. Even more evocative is the Miners Brass' just one foot high, which depicts a helmet, crest and figure of a mediaeval miner of the Forest of Dean with a hod and pick in his hand and candlestick in his mouth.
