Snibston Colliery Park is located in Coalville, Leicestershire. It has been recently regenerated and visitors can now visit and enjoy their facilities.

What is there to do at Snibston Colliery Park?

You can learn more about the history of Coalville and enjoy the Snibston Heritage trail, the play area and the Grange nature reserve. In the country park, there is a 4km mountain bike trail with jumps, bumps and berms. It is suitable for intermediate cyclists or mountain bikers with basic off-road riding skills.

There is also a skills area and pump track. The Skills area is great for practising if you aren’t quite ready to tackle the trail. There are jumps, uneven terrain and boardwalks giving novice cyclists the chance to build confidence and master the basics. The pump track is perfect for younger riders and is located next to the play area. It has been designed for balance bikes, scooters and pedal bikes.

You can enjoy a peaceful walk around the nature reserve and dotted around the site are some impressive contemporary art sculptures. You can also see the original Colliery buildings and machinery close up but all traces of mining are now gone. Britain’s oldest surviving travelling theatre now has a permanent home at Snibston which dates back to 1948.
