Lydney Docks and Harbour, Naas Lane, Lydney - Forest of Dean

The docks and harbour date from c1810 to 1821 and were once the main commercial port serving industry in the district. The Inner Basin is still in poor condition and needs extensive repairs. The Environment Agency has advertised the site and selected a preferred bidder to take over the ownership of the site. The final details of this sale are still being resolved. A local partnership group through the Local Authority are looking for funding to repair some structures and enhance the visitor experience of the site. Work has also been on-going to clear and control vegetation on the site.
