The Craft Trail

When visiting the Royal Forest of Dean for the first time, you will not only discover an enchanted area of natural beauty, but a delightfully varied region of the Gloucestershire countryside.

Extending to the south, magical ancient woodlands wait to be explored, carefully disguising an ancient industrial area of historic ironworks. While to the north, rich rolling countryside, landscaped market gardens and cloth mills as well as black and white timbered buildings dating back to around the 17th century.

It is from this mystical landscape that a number of craftsmen continue to take their inspiration. Using traditional skills, a variety of fine arts and crafts are still produced in the region today.

By following the Craft Trail you can explore the  mystique of the Forest while also discovering the very special pottery, mohair silk, jewellery and iron sculptures available at a number of outlets throughout the Royal Forest of Dean.
