During the past year Coleorton Heritage Group and friends have held regular "Sleuthing" get-togethers and coffee mornings to see if we could identify faces and places in old photos. We achieved some success and had a great time doing it.
As well as Coleorton folks we've welcomed friends from Leicester whose family used to run The Kings Arms and before that The Angel, and a couple from Melton Mowbray who had found a photo of the Coleorton Hall tenants and staff from 1919 and have discovered family links in Farm Town.
We put names to people in old photographs and also try to identify old houses - or where a house or building has been demolished where they were located. This would contribute to Shaelyn's House History project. So bring your own photos or information and we'll see if we can turn detective and put names to faces and places.
If you don't have any photos or are new to the area come anyway and enjoy a chat about Coleorton past and present. For further info email firstname.lastname@example.org or phone Sandra on 01530 440000.
