Funders and supporters

The Forest of Dean Greenways Project is a genuine local community initiative led by a group of unpaid volunteers from the Forest of Dean and District Horse Riders’ and Carriage Drivers’ Association and grant-aided by the Forest of Dean Local Action Group and the Gloucestershire Environmental Trust.

Horse riders, leisure cyclists and walkers can now enjoy some 30 miles of high-quality and inter-connected woodland tracks contained within four individual Greenway routes linked by quiet country lanes to local towns, villages, tourist attractions, hotels, pubs, equestrian centres and rural businesses… all thanks to the funding and support of the following organisations:
