Walks

The parish of Coleorton has an extensive network of public footpaths. Some say this is because workers at Coleorton Hall would walk the shortest distance across the fields from their outlying cottages. But looking at some of the footpaths on the map they seem much more random. We also have parts of The Ivanhoe Way which is a circular route around Leicestershire and the Mining Heritage Trail.


Coleorton History Spring Walk
Sunday 28 April

The walk will start at 10.30am from Coleorton Wood car park, Pitt Lane, off The Moor. The walk will be a fairly gentle stroll looking at some of the interesting buildings and sites on the south side of the village and hearing some of the stories of previous residents who lived, worked and played here. Children accompanied by adults and dogs on leads are welcome.

To book contact Sandra on 01530 440000 or email heritagegroup@coleorton.org.uk
