VISIT | Study Tidenham Chase from Soil to Sky | Gloucestershire
Escape to a heathland buzzing with life and nature
A wild and glorious heathland which is full of life
A place which leads to the Devil's Pulpit on the Offa's Dyke Path
Trails which criss-cross each other not far from Chepstow and the mighty Forest of Dean
"...the heathland pathways and wildlife of this area..."
Tidenham Chase is a step between the Forest of Dean and town of Chepstow. A heathland which buzzes with insect life and butterflies which range across the gorse and heather. The little car park offers an opportunity for those to wander with binoculars or with a four legged friend; even those smaller chums to scooter or just run, and run, and run...
But for those whose eyes venture further, the Offa's Dyke Path runs through this area...and if you follow onwards, past signs and paths that would have you otherwise circling the heath, you will get to the wonderful, stunning vista of Devil's Pulpit. A staggering viewpoint, set amidst trees and cliff edges the peeks out to drop down to Tintern, the Wye Valley, the abbey and the river itself.
But for those who do love the wonder of a heath, a habitat that for many decades has been on the decline, take the opportunity to see, enjoy and remark upon a rather lovely area that is Tidenham Chase.
