Places to Visit
The Royal Forest of Dean is home to many beautiful and distinctive churches, the most interesting of which are included within these pages making up the "Church Trail" for an enjoyable day out.
Today, standing religious remains vary in date an appearance from as early as the 12th century to the 19th century French Gothic style. Some of the most fascinating features include the famous 13th century frescoes at Kempley, the "Miners Brass" at Newland, depicting a local Forest miner as well as a variety of effigies, tablets and carvings.
A leaflet of the "Church Trail", including a map of the area is available from the Tourist Information Centres.
To follow the Church Trail around our web pages, start by selecting the Church Trail logo below, and then follow it from each church to the next. There are 15 churches to visit.
