King of the Wild Things

‘King of the Wild Things’ will be a series of posts, that will tell the story of JB’s summer adventures, at all the wonderful places dotted around the Royal Forest of Dean and Wye Valley.

With the summer fast approaching, I have decided to review as many attractions here in my childhood playground, with the emphasis on family fun, and hopefully show you a little bit of its vast history, and claim to fames, along the way.

The Royal Forest of Dean is the second largest crown forest in England and sits betwixt the rivers Severn and Wye, bordering South East Wales, in Gloucestershire. 

It comprises of over 42 square miles of mixed woodland, and almost all of it is open to the public, which means there’s plenty of fun to be had, whether your into woodland walks, family cycle days, extreme mountain biking, or swinging from treetop to treetop, as we apes are want to do.

The first post will go live on Friday 22nd of May, and will be covering my little mans favourite topic of trains, with a visit to Perrygrove Railway. So until then I’ll leave you with a few teasers.


Outside Tidmouth sheds apparently.


Treetop adventures to be had. 😎
