When you approach Littledean, the ‘Gateway to the Forest of Dean’, (don’t) follow the brown tourist signs?... (surely not!)
Cars can be accommodated at the entrance to the jail whilst COACHES should simply use the Littledean village bus stops as ‘drop off points’. These are situated approximately 80 metres from the entrance to the jail on either side of the road.
Gloucester is just 20 minutes from the Jail as is Tintern Abbey, but if you want to get further away, Bristol is 45 minutes, (you have to head down the A48 and cross the Severn Bridge at Chepstow!) and Cheltenham, Hereford and Cardiff are only 40 minutes from the Jail. Birmingham is an hour and a bit ,whilst London is just under 3 hours away - but who’d want to escape to there!
