Step back into Cinderford’s past and compare old photos with today’s scene.
The Forest of Dean, a green island nestled between two rivers; the mighty Severn and the winding Wye. This ancient forest has had a rather traumatic past. In medieval times it was a royal hunting forest, then a source of timber for the navy’s Tudor warships. By Victorian times it was a major site of industry; its noisy landscape greatly scarred by coal and iron mining, quarrying and associated industries.
