Homes and Houses

The Thatches in 2019

Just looking at some of the building going on in Coleorton we can see how the place is changing. As heritage buffs we love to keep the old cottages and appreciate that buildings have lives, often starting as something quite different from the way they are now. Travellers' inns and ale-houses turn into residences, small cottages are merged into one large house, businesses and shops come and go with little sign of their previous operations. Here are some local homes and their history:

Listed buildings

There are several listed buildings and sites in and around Coleorton inc Coleorton Hall and The Thatches. See Historic England listings for coleorton >>

Note: Musgrove Hall is included in "Coleorton" search results because of a reference to Uvedale price who helped design the gardens at Coleorton Hall.

Coleorton House History project

We have launched a “House History Project” to record present day homes, their history and their current and previous occupants. If you live in Coleorton and you'd like to help with this project see:
