Sorry it has taken so long to provide an update on our camping trip in the Forest of Dean last weekend, we’ve been really busy since we came back -more on that later.
I might have mentioned in an earlier post, we stayed for four nights and although the weather was pretty grim throughout, we still had a fantastic time and were both very relaxed on our return to work.
Rather than writing loads of waffle, I’ll give a brief description on each photograph. The entire slideshow is available here.
This is a picture of Symonds Yat East with the rive Wye running through it. There is little more than a canoe hire shop, a couple of pubs and hotels and the campsite we were staying at – everything within walking distance.
We managed a a 10 mile walk on the Saturday and many of the photos below were taken on route.
Me looking rather fresh 2-mile into the walk. This is the nearest bridge to the campsite which takes you from East to West.
One of a few waterfalls along the way – I like this picture of Sam, normally she has her head turned long before I can get the camera out of its pouch. It was pretty cold, hence her ear muffs.

In the pub the previous evening a few locals told us of some mining caves in the hills, they are closed to the public, so we entered at our own risk – they were pretty amazing. The locals had constructed a makeshift shaft with some tow rope. Sam wouldn’t go down as we only had a small torch, as you can imagine it was pitch black and very cold, the curiosity killed me and I had to go down – not much to see down the shaft I have to say.
That’s it, I could be writing all night, checkout the slideshow linked above.
