The King's Wood Sculpture Trail
The sculpture trail is approx. 6 km or 3.5 miles long, and a very enjoyable walk in all seasons. It takes you through different woodland areas including stands of coppice at different stages, areas of majestic beeches and conifers too. The trail is waymarked with red arrows and numbers to keep you on track. Paths can be steep and rough in places, so sturdy footwear and appropriate clothing for the season is advised.
