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. Because the parish is so spread out with no defined centre the Parish Council decided a website was a good way to communicate with parishioners. We hope the website will become a centre of information about activities, events and clubs in the area, a directory for local businesses and services, public transport, a platform for people who would like to share their enthusiasm for local history, the environment, etc.
