Welcome to Coleford

Located in Gloucestershire in the beautiful Forest of Dean, Coleford is a market town with lots to see and do in the local area. So whether you love going on bike rides, exploring museums or taking shopping trips to nearby cities, your new home in Coleford has something for everyone to enjoy.

A quick history

Coleford originally grew around a ford and by the middle of the 14th century had become a small hamlet with around eight houses. By the late 15th century Coleford had its own chapel, and its own market by 1642.

At the time of the English Civil War, troops marched through Coleford on their way to Gloucester which resulted in some disturbances including the burning of the market house. It was rebuilt in 1679, and the decades which followed saw a big growth in the population of the town. In the 20th century, Coleford continued to grow and today is a thriving administrative town.

Business and industry

Coleford is historically an iron-producing town, with a heritage stretching right back to the Middle Ages. Later the town had coal mines, an iron works and lime kiln, but today the town is built around tourism as visitors come and enjoy the cycling and walking routes in the Forest of Dean. Coleford is also home to Lucozade Ribena Suntory where the popular drinks are made, and the SPP Pumps Ltd factory.
