Thinning in Coleorton WoodThinning work in Coleorton Wood

Following advice and reports from our consultants a programme of management for Coleorton Woods is in place. This includes extensive thinning to encourage the growth of larger trees. The woods are open to the public at normal times but contractors will be operating in various parts of the wood so please take care.

The contractors are stacking up logs from the cut trees which will be sold to a log company and the proceeds used by the Council to continue the care of the Wood. More about Coleorton Wood >>

What's that box?

Strange metal boxes have appeared in Farm Town causing rumours of Big Brother taking an interest in our leafy village. However, it turns out the boxes are mobile traffic counting devices routinely placed by Leicester County Council’s Asset Management team to collect data about the volume of traffic on the road network. Maybe to do with the roadworks planned for October >>

About Coleorton Parish

Coleorton Parish includes the villages of Coleorton, Coleorton Moor, Church Town and Farm Town as well as parts of Peggs Green, Griffydam and Lount. The Parish Plan survey in 2008 found that parishioners felt communication of information throughout the parish was not effective and so a website was set up to address this. The website has now become a centre of information about activities and events in and around Coleorton, local clubs and organisations, a directory for local businesses and services and a platform for people who would like to share their enthusiasm for local history and the environment.

If you would like to contribute any item about Coleorton or surrounding areas or add details of your club, organisation or event (no charge) or have any suggestions for items on this website please email
