One of the four market towns in the Forest of Dean, Lydney is located on the bank of the River Severn. Lydney was once important for shipping timber, coal and iron through Lydney Docks, now a harbour for pleasure craft. Lydney railway station is located on the Gloucester to Newport line providing good transport links throughout the country.

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 collieries 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.

Lydney offers a wide range of facilities with many Shops, Banks, Building Societies and Supermarkets as well as a Sports Centre, Golf Course, Primary and Secondary Schools and also benefits from the popular Bathurst Park and Primrose Hill recreation grounds.
