Forest of Dean

Although the majority of the Forest of Dean is in Gloucestershire, some of it is on the borders of the south of Herefordshire. The photo below (which is 2 photos joined) is a fantastic view as seen from Symonds Yat Rock in Gloucestershire with the left part of the photo looking northwards in Herefordshire towards Ross-on-Wye.

The Forest of Dean is the second largest crown owned forest in England (after the New Forest in Hampshire) and its unspoilt mixed woodland are a fantastic place to enjoy walking, bird watching and other outdoor activities including canoeing.

This area is the birthplace of tourism as we know it (see Ross-on-Wye) and with scenery as spectacular as this, it is easy to see why.
