Towns and Villages in or near Lydney


To the south of the town are the tidal waters of the Severn, once a busy conduit for travel and trade, including the cargoes of coal from the Forest's colleries that were once shipped out from Lydney Docks.

The town is now a busy shopping and commercial centre with a wide range of leisure facilities and tourist attractions.

Lydney Docks has recently undergone restoration, while the popular Dean Forest Railway, which operates regular steam trains, have recently extended their services to Parkend.

Just outside the town lies Lydney Park Estate which contains spectacular spring gardens and Taurus Crafts, one of the premier visitor attractions in the area featuring an art gallery, craft workshops, garden centre plus organic shop and restaurant.

Within the town there is a wide variety of shops, including three busy supermarkets, plus Lydney also benefits from the popular Bathurst Park and Primrose Hill recreation grounds.
