History at your fingertips

A small group of local people are documenting the history of the village of Newbold Coleorton. Whilst references to Newbold have been made in other historical texts relating to this area, there is no specific formal account of the significance of this village. We are changing this.

Heritage Trail

The New Lount Colliery Heritage Trail officially opened in May 2017. You can find more details of the trail here, or goto the video page to see how this important community project came to fruition with the help of volunteers and sponsors.
