The town of Cinderford
Cinderford is a quaint little region in Gloucestershire and it comprises 8116 people according to the 2001 consensus of the United Kingdom. The town is situated in the eastern part of the Forest of Dean. It was founded during the nineteenth century when the local coal mines were expanded.
The visual view of Cinderford is characteristic to the other towns of South Wales with rows of terraced houses. Cinderford suffered more than the other town of the forest, Coleford, when the coal mines closed during the 1950s. This was because the town had no other industries to fall back upon. Today the economy of the town is good with a few light and heavy industries to help it and the unemployment levels are also low.
Woolworths which was the leading store and which sold almost everything closed down due to the economic recession. This was a big blow to the economy and many people lost their jobs. However, a new store called Bomdia soon opened and this was a huge relief for the people of Cinderford. Most people also got their jobs back due to the opening of Bomdia. The Freeminer Brewery is a well known brewery, which is situated in Steam Mines. It produces a whole range of traditional ales.
The education in Cinderford is good at all levels, be it primary, secondary or tertiary. There are many schools for each stage of education and the schools have all been functioning since a very early part of the town’s history.
Cinderford has many sports and recreational clubs including the Cinderford R.F.C, Cinderford town football club and Cinderford and district-swimming club.
The town of Cinderford did have a railway station but it was destroyed during the Beeching cuts of 1960. The closest airports are that of Bristol and Staverton.
