THE BIXSLADE TRAMROAD TRAIL
A three mile walk through a tree lined valley in which can be found most aspects of Forest of Dean Industrial History, joined together by the route of the Bicslade Tramroad.
The area around Bicslade is an ideal location in which to see many aspects of the modern working forest complementing the varied ecological benefits provided by this ancient working landscape. Along the way you will see a working freemine, a monument to a mining disaster at the pithead of an old mine, working quarries,
and old drift mines.
The leaflet that accompanies this walk is available at many outlets in the Forest area.

Old mines are dangerous. Keep well clear of old mine shafts and quarry faces, whether fenced or not. Take particular care if you leave the designated walk route, as old workings may be hidden by undergrowth. On no account should you venture underground unless guided by an experienced mine explorer with local knowledge.
