Mitcheldean Town Information




Use the links on the left to find information and images for the towns and villages throughout Gloucestershire...








This large village lies in the Forest of Dean and developed during the Middle Ages through the working of locally mined iron ore.




Later it prospered thanks to beer making.




It still retains much of its original character and proudly boasts a 14th century church (one of the widest in England), some half-timbered cottages and an 18th century town hall.




One of its public houses, The George Inn, dates to the 17th century.
