Our history: The Review first hit Forest doormats in the severe economic downturn of 1982, and it became an immediate hit. Initially serving the villagers of the ‘old’ Forest of Dean and its market towns of Cinderford, Coleford and Lydney, a major change occurred in 1984 with the launch of a sister’ paper, the Wye Valley Review. Soon after that both papers combined, and the rest is history!
