The Dean Forest Greenway will run for 5.8kms from its start
near the Fountain Inn at Parkend to its end on the Co-op path in
Lydney. The Greenway will be built to the same standard as the family
trail at Beechenhurst and will be designed to provide a safe and
attractive route for pedestrians and cyclists connecting Lydney to
the heart of the Forest of Dean.

The route will be traffic free over its whole length, save for 4 road
crossings, and will be designed with easy gradients to be suitable
for wheelchair users. At Norchard a bridge over the railway will
provide a link from the Greenway to the station.
The project is being promoted by West Dean Parish Council and
is designed and managed by Greenways and Cycleroutes.
