Dean Forest Park was a national park in the west of England.

Just to the west of the park was the Welsh border. The nearest city was Gloucester to the east. Located in Dean Forest Park were a number of small towns and villages. Mitcheldean was located on the north-eastern edge of the park. South of Mitcheldean and on the eastern edge of the park was Cinderford, to the southern edge of the park was Yorkley and on the south-western edge was Coleford. Blakeney was just on the south-eastern outskirts, and Bream was on the south-western outskirts of Dean Forest Park.

Dean Forest Park appeared on Mary Cooper's map of overflow camps in and around Wales. (TV: The Categories of Life)

Behind the scenes Edit

Dean Forest Park, or the Forest of Dean as it is more commonly known, has been used as a filming location for multiple Doctor Who episodes.

The ancient woodland of Puzzlewood stood in for the forest aboard the Byzantium in the episodes The Time of Angels and Flesh and Stone. Puzzlewood was again used in The Time of the Doctor, as the location where the Eleventh Doctor and Clara Oswald encounter the snow-covered Weeping Angels on the planet Trenzalore.

Clearwell Caves, also located in the park, have appeared as the interior of the Sycorax spaceship in The Christmas Invasion, the eponymous pit in The Satan Pit, the caves of Vesuvius in The Fires of Pompeii and the Maze of the Dead in The Time of Angels and Flesh and Stone.

The Forest of Dean has also featured in other franchises including Harry Potter and Star Wars.
