Coleorton Heritage Trail Guided Walks

Wednesday 17 July 2013

As part of the Festival of British Archaeology, the Heritage Group organised a guided walk around the Coleorton Village Heritage Trail on Wednesday 17th July, starting from the Kings Arms car park at 9.30am.

The route followed The Moor up to Pitt Lane, across the fields to the back of the school and then to St John's Chapel.

From there, across the A512 and down Lower Moor Road to see the Methodist churches, along to The Woolrooms, up Bakewells Lane, across the A512, past the rope walk into Prestons Lane, by the Community Bakehouse and back to the Kings Arms for a well-earned refreshment.
