This is the true story of how the Forest of Dean came to be
This is a desperately sad love story that I wrote with the children of Woolaston and Lydney Severnbanks schools back in 2007. you can get a copy here:
It was part of a European Comenius project to create fairy tales based on our localities.
There used to be a a sculpture in the Forest called the Giant’s Chair. It became unsafe and has been pulled down and turned into charcoal now, but it used to sit high above Coleford. Made of Giant Oak tree trunks, it was our starting point for the story. Who was the Giant that sat on that chair? The story grew and grew.
I hope you enjoy it. If so, why not watch another school created story – Otis, the Laser Bunny
