Memories of Coleorton edition 2Last minute Christmas present?

The Coleorton Heritage Group still have a few copies of the second edition of the book "Memories of Coleorton - Reminiscences of the Residents". It's a hard-back book with lots of photos and accounts from Coleorton residents about their memories of times gone by. It would make a nice gift, especially for someone who has moved away and would be thrilled to be reminded of old times. You can purchase a copy for 20 from Coleorton Post Office, Ashby Museum or call Elaine and Rob Oldham on 01530 412967 or Mike Cox on 01530 813743 or email

About Coleorton Parish

Coleorton Parish includes the villages of Coleorton, Coleorton Moor, Church Town and Farm Town as well as parts of Peggs Green, Griffydam and Lount. The Parish Plan survey in 2008 found that parishioners felt communication of information throughout the parish was not effective and so a website was set up to address this. The website has now become a centre of information about activities and events in and around Coleorton, local clubs and organisations, a directory for local businesses and services and a platform for people who would like to share their enthusiasm for local history and the environment.

If you would like to contribute any item about Coleorton or surrounding areas or add details of your club, organisation or event (no charge) or have any suggestions for items on this website please email
