Lydney Park: Extensive woodland garden with rhododendrons and azaleas. Picnics in the Deer Park. Roman temple site and museum. There is a woodland garden running along a secluded valley, planted with magnolias, rhododendrons, azaleas and other flowering shrubs. There is a paved terrace above and formal gardens which are popular in the Spring, when the daffodils bloom. The museum contains findings from the Roman site and artefacts from New Zealand. The area has an early Iron Age promontory fort, known as Lydney Camp, covering 4.5 acres. The Romans used the site, until the early 4th century, for the extraction of iron ore. Open-cast iron mines, or scowles, and tunnels still exist throughout the hill.
