Extensive area of woodland and lakes on site of New Lount Colliery which closed in 1968. Open dawn to dusk daily and free admission. Access from Melbourne Road, on the left just past Newbold on the way to Lount. Dogs must be kept on lead.
The Coleorton and New Lount Volunteer Group are busy at this site preserving the area for both humans and wild life:
Children from Newbold Primary School planted wild heather at New Lount in March 2013. Read more about the heather planting and see photos >>
