Coleorton Village History

The book is on sale at Coleorton Post office and is priced at £13 (it has 334 pages, so is quite big).

Trevor's other books are available and cover:

• History of Coleorton & the Locality - A Social and Historical Study around Coleorton 12th Century - c 1960

• Coleorton Pottery 1835-1938

• Methodism & Social History of Coleorton
