Longhope is a village in west Gloucestershire, situated within the Forest of Dean, England, United Kingdom.The placename Longhope means "long, enclosed valley" which describes the aspect of the village.The village was inhabited by the 11th century and the manor of Hope is mentioned in the Domesday Book. The village parish church, dedicated to All Saints, dates back to Norman times although it was heavily restored during the 1860s when the north vestries were added and the tower was partially rebuilt. The arms of William III hang above the door and lower parts of the four stage west tower are late Norman, as is one window. There exists also, in the north transept, an effigy of a priest which is dated to circa 1300. The porch and several windows are early 14th century.Opposite the church, Court Leet was once the local court with the adjacent half timbered cottage being the gaol. Another house of historic interest is Royal Spring, where Charles I is said to have stopped for refreshment in 1642 after the battle of Powick Bridge during the English Civil War.
