Coleorton Wood Summer Opening

The car park will revert to summer opening times from 1st April and remain open until 8.00 p.m. As the nights draw in during September it will close progressively earlier until winter time closing at 4.00 p.m. on the 30th.

During the first few days of April, particularly if there’s significant cloud cover, it may be dark a little before 8.00 p.m. so we would request that you vacate earlier as appropriate.

Please do respect the closing times as the car park is opened and closed by volunteers and it would not be appropriate to expect them to wait for vehicles to vacate.

Please use the litter bin provided for dog waste and any other litter, and we hope you enjoy some lovely evening walks in the wood.

** Coleorton Wood – Important **

During the afternoon of Tuesday 26th March, a very tall (dead) tree is being felled in the post office field (this is the smaller gated area to the west of the main wood). The tree is very close to the grass path around the perimeter. Although the contractor will have all safety procedures in force, including lookouts stationed at either end of the path, it may be a good idea to avoid the post office wood if possible for that afternoon.
