Carved wooden owl stolen from the Dean Heritage Centre

On Monday 15th October, staff at the Dean Heritage Centre were dismayed to find that one of the wooden carved owls from their highly acclaimed Gruffalo trail had been stolen from the heritage site, in Soudley.

The charitable trust which seeks to preserve the history and heritage of the Forest of Dean are urging anyone who sees the stolen owl carving (see picture) or has any information regarding the theft to get in touch with local police, quoting incident number 106/18.

The hugely popular Gruffalo trail, which opened in the spring, depicts scenes from the Gruffalo storybook and has been painstakingly carved by resident chainsaw artists Clayton Ryder and Gil Parnham, using locally sourced redwood from the Forest of Dean.  The Gruffalo trail remains open as usual and will continue throughout 2012.
