The Sculpture Trail Art in the Forest

Established in 1986, this 4.5 mile long Sculpture Trail was one of the first to open in the UK. The Trail features sculptures created by artists to interpret the Forest environment and the history of this very unusual landscape. It provides a unique opportunity to walk through the woodlands and discover art along the way. Perfect for all ages and abilities, you don't need to know about art to enjoy what you see.

The sculptures are installed within the woodland to encourage you to seek them out - the trailmarkers with purple arrows will direct you - but if you want to make life easier for yourself, pick up a map from the cafe at Beechenhurst Lodge.

  • Walk Route: Follow trailmarkers with purple arrows
