Coleorton 2019 Calendar - July

Coleorton Wood

Coleorton Wood is a six-hectare mixed, young woodland planted during the early days of The National Forest on the site of the former "Bug and Wink" colliery. It is owned and managed by Coleorton Parish Council. The wood is accessed from Pitt Lane, off The Moor (signposted).

The Wood is managed as a public facility and as a nature reserve. There are a number of information boards explaining the history and also the wildlife to be found in the woods and pond.

The Coleorton and New Lount Volunteer Group undertake the majority of the maintenance work and also build benches, tables and bird boxes.

Read about its transformation from industrial grime and post-industrial neglect to the beautiful green Coleorton Wood we have today.
