The small town of Mitcheldean is located to the east of the Forest of Dean. For centuries Mitcheldean was thriving due to iron ore deposits near by. The town prospered further due to the local brewing industry and a photocopier factory.
The history of the town can still be seen today with many timbered houses and narrow streets. The church of St Michael was originally built in the 13th century, and the large town and steeple dominate the skyline.
