At the Society's indoor meeting on 16 Jan, Justin Hughes introduced us to the 'Built Heritage' project, part of the Foresters' Forest Heritage Landscape Programme.
The aim of 'Built Heritage' is to produce a photographic record of historic features that are important to the people who live in, and visit, the Forest of Dean.
The Programme is therefore asking residents of, and visitors to, the Forest of Dean to take photographs of any historic features (buildings, ruins etc) which are special to, or known to them. These could be industrial structures, forest lodges, houses, or just the remains of unusual historic buildings or structures in the forest that you happen to value or be fascinated by.
After receiving all the photos – the deadline is 4 March 2016 – the project will
assess the sites people have photographed to create a list of works in priority order.
The full details and accompanying form can be found below. Any questions should be directed to the Programme at
