Drybrook

Towns and Villages in or near Cinderford


Description

Drybrook is a small, pretty village north of Cinderford. Like many villages in the district, Drybrook's population grew as its potential for coal and stone extraction were realised.

Drybrook has a very unusual black and white building with a five-storey square tower. This was once the Euroclydon Hotel (the name is still on the tower) and was originally built in 1876 for a wealthy mine-owner to provide a look-out over his domain and workers.

Drybrook has one small church built in 1817 and has eight tubular bells installed as a memorial to those who lost their lives in World War I.
