This was taken on circular walk through the forest using the former Severn and Wye Railway trackbeds now converted into cyclepaths.  The walk started and ended at Cannop Ponds and this location is just north of there.  
  
Could a railway return here?   The Dean Forest Railway has said it wants to, and then onto Cinderford, but it would be extremely difficult and expensive for them to extend this far north, especially with the majority of the trackbed now converted to a cyclepath.   This is certainly not going to happen overnight.
