# Minors of two-connected graphs of large path-width

Let P be a graph with a vertex v such that P v is a forest, and let Q be an outerplanar graph. We prove that there exists a number p=p(P,Q) such that every 2-connected graph of path-width at least p has a minor isomorphic to P or Q. This result answers a question of Seymour and implies a conjecture of Marshall and Wood.
