Discover stunning views of the Forest of Dean at the New Fancy View Point, located near Cannop
Formerly the site of the New Fancy coal mine, come and see the spectacular views that the old spoil heap now provides. The viewpoint is an ideal place to watch birds of prey soaring above the woodland.
Other features that you can explore at New Fancy include the Geomap, a map you can walk on showing the underlying geology of the forest with mines and quarries marked out, plus the 'Roll of Honour' Sculpture. The 'Roll of Honour' sculpture, visible from the car park, was installed in 2005.
At nearly five hundred feet above sea level the viewpoint is particularly good for watching Goshawks and other birds of prey.
There is easy access to the Family cycle trail, at Cannop Cycle Centre, from the car park.
