Sleuthing at The Angel

On Tuesday 16th November members of Coleorton Heritage Group and friends got together at The Angel Inn, on the Moor, to do a bit of sleuthing and try and see if we could identify some faces and places in old photos. The Heritage Group have some photos that we didn't have names for and many people brought their own collections.

We achieved some success at identification and had a great time doing it. So we have decided to repeat the event in the new year. Details here soon.

If you have a photo you want help with do come along - or come anyway and enjoy. More about our "Sleuthing" events >>

In the meantime we'd love to hear your stories and together build our knowledge of Coleorton heritage. Call Sandra on 01530 440000 or email to let us know you're coming.

The Coleorton Heritage Group

The Coleorton 2000 Committee was initiated in 1998 to devise a way of commemorating the new millennium. We developed the Millennium Garden in a plot of land kindly donated by Joan Cull, erected a commemorative sign and organised various associated celebrations and events.

More recently the group has been concerned with researching, recording and making publicly available local heritage, social, industrial and family history. We also support various restoration projects, for example the Bakehouse. So the name was changed to "The Coleorton Heritage Group".

We send out a newsletter every month or so with news about our activities and events. If you would like to receive our newsletter please subscribe >>.
