Marian's Walk, Forest of Dean

By Henrik Thiil Nielsen, 2018-10-14. Revised by Henrik Thiil Nielsen, 2018-10-14.

A lane running alongside Grove Road in Berry Hill, less than one km NNW of Coleford, is named Marian's Walk.


The street name is not included on any of the O.S. maps listed below. This fact together with the look of the houses along it (see photo below) suggests that the walk dates from the second half of the 20th century. It is one of a handful of localities or thoroughfares in the area with "Marian" in their names that may all directly or indirecly owe their names to the existence of a Robin Hood inn in the area in the first half of the 19th century.
