The Project Partners were:

Forest of Dean Local History Society (lead organisation)
Forestry Commission
Gloucestershire Geology Trust
Coleford MCTI Partnership
Forest of Dean District Council

To create the Geomap a full size enlargement of the area’s geology map was printed and laid out on the floor of a large warehouse. Using this as a template, the sculptor cut the slabs of stone so that all the pieces fitted together like an enormous jigsaw.
