Geomap for the Forest of Dean

The Forest of Dean Local History Society has been awarded a grant to create a unique Geomap sculpture of the area. The strata of the Forest will be represented by the actual rock types, taken from both working and disused quarries. The flat sculpture will cover 84 square metres and, although the surface will be polished, it will be rough enough for people to walk on safely.
The Geomap is intended to demonstrate and celebrate the link between geology of the Forest of Dean and its long quarrying and mining history. It will be built on a site called New Fancy on a flat, grassy area opposite the Miners' Memorial
