Coleorton Village Heritage Trail

The Coleorton Village Heritage Trail is a two-hour walk through the long and substantial heritage of Coleorton, typical of an ancient village in the Midlands. The Trail describes in some detail the rich history as you walk along its route.

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

Parts of the Trail are not suitable for those with wheelchairs and pushchairs as there are a number of stiles and gates to be negotiated, but much of the Trail is accessible for both wheelchairs and pushchairs since it uses footpaths and bye-roads. Suitable footwear is advised.

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

Heritage Trail leaflets with map can be obtained from heritagegroup@coleorton.org.uk, from the Coleorton post-office or local pubs or you can download the brochure and map as a pdf from here (2MB) >>
