Lydney Walks


Lydney Area in Partnership has produced a book the walks in and around Lydney. Volunteers have walked the walks, taken the photographs, written the step by step guide and undertake maintenance of the paths. Walking is said to be one of the most effective ways to remain fit and healthy for all age groups and is one of the reasons the Partnership decided to develop this publication. The 10 walks in this fully illustrated book range in distance and terrain and there is something for everyone. Some of the walks keep near to the town centre while others journey into the outstanding woods and open spaces further off the beaten track to places even long-standing residents may not know exist.  Distance, timing and ability level is shown for every walk. The walks are designed for residents and to attract visitors to help support local businesses and tourist attractions.  All proceeds from sales of the book will be re invested in other community projects chosen by the community. The book is priced at £3, and is available from Libraries, Town Council Offices, Taurus Crafts, Dean Forest Railway, Dean Heritage Museum and on line from Forest of Dean Trader   or from
