Magical Fence at Puzzlewood

Puzzlewood, in the Forest of Dean, is like no other woodland around. With its knarled trees, twisting pathways and canyons of collapsed caves, it’s a like something out of a fairy tale or many popular television shows.

As wonderful as the caves are, what I love most about Puzzlewood is the wild wood itself, and the many fences scattered throughout the wood to guide visitors around and give you a myriad of pathways to explore. It reminds me a lot of the many woods I used to play in as a kid, most of which have been cleared and replaced with industrial estates and business parks. I grew up in a town, but it never felt as concrete and as urban as what kids today are growing up in. If you can prise them away from their X-Boxes long enough to notice, that is …

Open-air Caves At Puzzlewood

Puzzlewood, in the Forest of Dean, is like no other woodland around. With its knarled trees, twisting pathways and canyons of collapsed caves, it’s a like something out of a fairy tale or many popular television shows.

The unusual paths through the rocks at Puzzlewood are believed to once have been caves. Over time, the roofs collapsed and stone was carried away, leaving these amazing paths behind. Exploring them is great fun for children of all ages!

Access Denied at Puzzlewood

Puzzlewood, in the Forest of Dean, is like no other woodland around. With its knarled trees, twisting pathways and canyons of collapsed caves, it’s a like something out of a fairy tale or many popular television shows.

When we visited over Easter, one of the things that caught our eye was a large wooden building off in the distance. Unfortunately, this very pretty fence had been drawn over the path to it, preventing visitors from getting anywhere near it. Perhaps it is part of the set for a television show?

Viewing Bass Rock

This week’s theme is Tantallon Castle, on the Scottish coastline in East Lothian just outside North Berwick. We visited it in September 2010 whilst exploring the coastline north of Berwick upon Tweed, and we were instantly captivated by its wonderful setting on the coast with the backdrop of Bass Rock.

I can’t write about Tantallon Castle without mentioning Bass Rock, out in the Forth of Firth, and clearly visible from the castle. You can clearly see the automated lighthouse from the shore, as well as the huge gannet colony that forms the rock’s only inhabitants.

I hope you’ve enjoyed this week’s photos, and that they have inspired you to go and visit Tantallon Castle yourself when you get the chance. I’ll be back on Monday with the first set of photos from the amazing Puzzlewood in the Forest of Dean.

Looking At The Cliff Edge

This week’s theme is Tantallon Castle, on the Scottish coastline in East Lothian just outside North Berwick. We visited it in September 2010 whilst exploring the coastline north of Berwick upon Tweed, and we were instantly captivated by its wonderful setting on the coast with the backdrop of Bass Rock.

It is worth visiting Tantallon Castle just for the wonderful views afforded by its coastal setting. No matter how much you are used to seeing castles dominating coastlines (and here in Wales we’re really spoiled by this), Tantallon will still take your breath away.
