The Forest of Dean Sculpture Trail presents a rich source of inspiration – not only for artists – but for everyone.

The Forest of Dean Sculpture Trail offers over four miles of sculptures and installation art in the heart of England’s ancient woodland. For nearly 40 years, the Forest of Dean Sculpture Trust (FODST) and Forestry England have provided a home to works by some of the world’s leading artists.

On the trail, which is free to visit and open daily, visitors encounter iconic highlights, including works by David Nash, Kevin Atherton and Cornelia Parker, alongside more recent pieces by Natasha Rosling, Pomona Zipser and Henry Castle.

The trail welcomes over 300,000 visitors every year, and we invite you to enjoy the sculptures and their environment on a wide range of levels. The Forest of Dean is not a gallery, and although there are footpaths and signposts, you will not find labels and information about the artworks. Instead, you are encouraged to investigate the sculptures in your own way.
