Coleorton Heritage Group Walks

In September of 2011 the Coleorton Heritage Group published the Coleorton Village Heritage Trail, which is a two-hour walk through the long and substantial heritage of Coleorton.

From time to time the Heritage Group offer escorted walks around the Trail, but you can also walk the Trail unescorted downloading a copy of the Trail leaflet & map from here or picking up a free hard-copy of the Trail leaflet (from the Coleorton post-office or local pubs).

The Heritage Group organised an escorted walk along the Coleorton Heritage Trail on Sunday 17 July 2013, as part of the Festival of British Archaeology.  Further details and photos >>

The Heritage Group occasionally arrange group walks around the parish usually with a theme. Look on the Events page or the sidebar on the right for details.
