Mitcheldean is a small town in Gloucestershire, situated in the Royal Forest of Dean area. If you visit Mitcheldean, you will doubtless be impressed by the church dedicated to Saint Michael, which was built initially in the 14th century. There are also half-timbered houses in the town, along with the George Inn, which dates back to the 17th century. The town hall was erected in the 18th century and in the forest itself you can find Hart’s Barn, one of the last remaining old Norman hunting lodges. The area around Mitcheldean was a mining area for both coal and iron ore, with wood aplenty there were also charcoal burners who used the charcoal they produced to help in the smelting process.
