Cinderford - an industrial scene.

Image: Cinderford early industrial scene (84k)

An early view of Cinderford looking towards Valley Road taken form a book of photos by E J Reece.

John Phillips added (August 2020): "... This photo must be pre 1900. The key feature is the Baptist Chapel. This appears smaller than it is today. The building lacks the classrooms at the back. These were added about 1900. The extension also included the installation of a pipe organ (formerly a harmonium was used). The date of installation of the organ was 1904 and it was rebuilt and enlarged in 1941. It is still in use".
