The hardest rock is the Quartz Conglomerate, forming the main rampart of the Forest and from which one of the most spectacular views in Gloucestershire can be seen. We will then, at Edge Hills, cross a succession of upturned beds, each forming a distinctive element in the landscape, and which each have been used by man in the past for different purposes. Meet on the roadside at the top end (eastern) of Cinderford GR SO 663 136. If approaching from Littledean, follow the hairpin bend round and turn right at the top of the hill
