Puzzlewood


This week we took Mr Bear on a road trip to Puzzlewood! Hooray!



Puzzlewood is a magical and secretive forest in Gloucestershire, where lots of films and TV series have been filmed. It just looks like an ordinary wood from here, but wait until we go inside!



Before we went in, we made new friends.



They were so sweet and polite!



They're also very big, compared to a small bear.



Inside the wood, we could stand at root level as natural stone and soil erosion had made some very unusual formations. It is mossy, ferny, and slightly eerie.



Higher up there are bridges and seats, and all of the paths are skillfully lined with branch fences.



You can look a long way down (if you want to). No? Okay.



Some of the trees are absolutely enormous.



A lot of fallen trees and branches have been left to become habitat for small creatures, and covered in mosses and lichens. There's something a bit dragon-like here and there.



There are lots of winding steps...



A stash of 3000 Roman coins was found in the wood, so who knows how many stories it holds? What else might be hidden here?
