Lord Nelson was not satisfied with the quality and quantity of oak that was available from British forests so he ordered that more should be planted to make fine English oak available for shipbuilding in the future.  Over 200 years on and the fruits of his instructions are available for all to see in the Forest of Dean.



The winter of 2013-2014 was extremely wet and large areas of the Forest were running deep in the drainage ditches.
