If travelling from Bristol by car -
By far the quickest route is via Chepstow and along the A48 towards Gloucester on the Welsh side of the river. This avoids all the small villages in The Forest itself, and any potential rush hour traffic or road works in Gloucester. Remember to take the left hand slip road signed Forest of Dean and Chepstow, after the brow of the hill, and go over the OLD BRIDGE – if you go over the new bridge by mistake, take the M48 back to Chepstow on the Welsh side of the river!
Proceed along the A48, and through Newnham on Severn – about 30 minutes. Out the other side of Newnham, and through Broadoak, and under a railway bridge – you will pass Glevum Conservatories on your right, and a Texaco Garage on your left. Continue up the hill after the Texaco Garage. You will see signs, on the right hand side of the road, to Flaxley and Mitcheldean. The turning itself is on the left and fairly concealed, just over the brow of the hill and through a small fairly concealed pedestrian passageway.
Mitcheldean is 4 miles from this point, along beautiful country lanes. Follow signs for Flaxley, past the abbey and chapel, and then proceed right to Mitcheldean. Once you enter Mitcheldean, at The Lamb pub, turn left onto the mini roundabout, and then immediately right. When you see the church over to the left infront of you and the now closed George Pub to your right, slow down quickly and look for a parking space!
If travelling from London or the North -
Come off the motorway at Gloucester, and leave it on the A40 – the Ross and Monmouth Road. Continue on the A40 and follow signs for Ross-on-Wye, until you reach the village of Huntley. Then turn left at the lights, taking the A4136 for Monmouth. On arrival into Mitcheldean, The Lamb Pub will be on your left. Turn right at the mini roundabout and proceed over the brow of the hill. When you see the church over to the left infront of you and the now closed George Pub to your right, slow down quickly and look for a parking space!
