Puzzlewood Woodlands

Puzzlewood is an ancient woodland site in the Forest of Dean in Gloucestershire, England. J.R.R. Tolkien used this woodland as inspiration for Lord of the Rings, and it has since become a popular location for filming both movies and television programs. Something extra going on in that last picture.

When it comes to geology, Puzzlewood is full of scowles, and it has an amazing cave system.

The owner of this woodland laid down a mile of pathways to provide access to the woods, but today it’s a tourist attraction.

BBC TV shows have used Puzzlewood, like Merlin, “The Labyrinth of Gedref” and “The Nightmare Begins”.

Not far away you can find Hobbit-looking homes in Wales.
