Aylburton

A small village on the A48 road, just south of Lydney. The village of Aylburton has a population of about 650. The village boasts a fine 14th century preaching cross in a central position. Not far away from this is the Aylburton Methodist Church. The "old hospital" at Upper High Street, now a private house, was founded early in the 1900's by Bertha, Lady Bledisloe of Lydney Park and later developed into the Lydney and District Hospital at Gove Road, Lydney. The Aylburton Memorial Hall commemorates the village's fallen in two World Wars and was completed in 1922.
