New opening times for Coleorton Wood

Coleorton Parish Council has agreed to a trial period of longer opening hours at Coleorton Wood. We have been approached by local residents who would appreciate the opportunity to enjoy this wonderful amenity later on Spring and Summer evenings. This decision has been taken following consultation with local residents living on the approach road to Coleorton Wood (Pitt Lane) who will obviously see an increase in traffic - so please show consideration for them at all times. The trial will run from 1st July until 30th September 2020.

Currently the car park is open from 8.30 a.m. until 4.00 p.m.
During the trial period it will be open from 8.00 a.m. until 8.00 p.m.

Covid-19 Response Team meetings

Coleorton Parish Council's Covid-19 Response Team began their work at the beginning of March. We put out a request entitled "Assistance for Coleorton Residents during Corona Crisis". Whilst the monthly Parish Council meeting for March had to be cancelled following government advice for social distancing etc, the councillors have still been active behind the scenes. The councillors and parish clerks have been holding Covid-19 meetings via telecommunications and latterly by Zoom, working out how best to help the self-isolating and vulnerable parishioners. The response from parishioners in terms of offering support to the Covid-19 councillors team has also been encouraging. About the Assistance scheme >>

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
