  • Easter Sunday 21 April 10.30am Holy Communion at St Mary's, Coleorton
  • Saturday 27 April. Walk to Carvers Rock near Hartshorne with Griffdam Community Group Details >>
  • Clothes Sale Saturday 27 April 10am - 12noon at Worthington Methodist Chapel, Main Street, Worthington. Lots of fashion bargains to be had.
  • Sunday 28 April. Heritage Group Spring History Walk on starting 10.30am at Coleorton Wood Car Park. More about these and other walks >>

Weekend closures on Bardon Road, Coalville, April & May

If you're intending to travel on the A50 Bardon Road take note of these planned roadworks and closures (being undertaken to allow Aggregate Industries to facilitate carriageway improvements and better access to Bardon Quarry). The official diversion for through traffic is down the A512 - so expect heavier traffic there.

The closures are between Birch Tree Roundabout and Waterworks Road as follows:

  • 19:00 Thursday 18 April to 02:00 Tuesday 23 April (Easter weekend)
  • 19:00 Friday 26 April to 02:00 Monday 29 April
  • 19:00 Friday 3 May to 02:00 Tuesday 7 May

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

Local businesses and services

Coleorton residents are an enterprising bunch: the latest Coleorton businesses listed in the local services directory include IT specialists, photographers and dog walkers. Email if you would like your local business listed (free of charge for Coleorton-based businesses or owners).
