Coronavirus (COVID-19)

If you are planning on travelling distance to attractions, we would recommend that you contact the venues directly in advance to avoid disappointment.

If you, or any of your party have a new persistant cough, or develop a fever of 38C, we would instead advise you to use the NHS's dedicated website for professional advice.

Pleasley Country Park

Pleasley Pit Country Park, as its name suggests, is a reclaimed colliery site.
Now it is such a great place for nature lovers to see many different birds, wildflowers, butterflies, dragonflies and damselflies that it has just been designated as a local nature reserve.
Much of the country park is on level ground with surfaced tracks for easier access. The park links to The Phoenix Greenways ? a series of linked paths and trails to help you explore some of our beautiful landscape on foot, on your bike or even on horseback.
In dramatic contrast to the country park you will see the remaining pit buildings which are now a Scheduled Ancient Monument (SAM). If you want to visit the pit buildings look out for the occasional open days held by The Pleasley Pit Trust.
