Bid to save Iron Age attraction
Artist's impression
Visitors could stay for up to a week living in communal roundhouses
A tourist attraction which offered people the chance to experience life as an Iron Age village has ceased trading just months after it opened.

New bosses are being sought to save the Cinderbury settlement in the Forest of Dean, which still has bookings.

The directors were not immediately available to say why they had pulled out. They have asked their publicists to help keep it going.

The site's landowners are also seeking parties to take over the attraction.

Cinderbury held several residential weekends during the summer where visitors lived in roundhouses, wore authentic clothes and learned to weave and forage for food.

It also attracted school parties and day visitors.

Angie Petkovic, of publicists APT Marketing, said: "It had closed for the season, but the owners have asked if we can find somebody to take it over and re-open it as a tourist attraction next year."
