English: Cinderford is a small town in Gloucestershire, England, with a population of 8,116 people (United Kingdom Census 2001). The town lies on the eastern fringe of the Forest of Dean. The town only came into existence in the 19th century due to the rapid expansion of the local coal mines. There is a visual clue to Cinderford's origins in that the style and layout of the town, with long rows of identical terraced housing, very similar to many of the South Wales Valleys towns that also grew up from the coal mining industry. When the mines here closed in the 1950s, Cinderford suffered worse than Coleford, the other main town of the Forest, because it had few other industries to fall back on. Today Cinderford has some light and heavy industry, but generally the town is doing as well economically as the older towns in the west of the Forest, and unemployment in the town is quite low.
