We've has teamed up with the artists behind Dirty Beach to create the UK’s first ever rural litter shop. The ‘CON-venience store’ is stocked with litter from yesteryear collected from the forest floor, revealing the quantity and permanence of litter that is dropped.

A team of local residents helped wash and sort the litter for the installation and had a number of vintage and unusual finds:

  • Decades old crisp packets
  • 40 year old drinks bottles with cork stoppers
  • Old pull-ring drinks cans
  • ONE old croc — beware, there might be another one still lurking in the wood!



VISIT: 21a St Johns Street, Coleford GL16 8AP. Open Friday, Saturday and Monday from 10am to 4pm between now and the end of June.

Did you spot the shop on the BBC's homepage as the 4th most read news item?
