Welcome to Colnevalley.com. Here you will find a guide to Earls Colne and the surrounding area within the Colne Valley.
Earls Colne Open Gardens
It's been a wonderful year for gardeners. If your garden is looking particularly good this year, chances are it will look just as good or even better next year.
The 9th Earls Colne gardens will be returning in 2015, after a year off.
The event will be held on Sunday June 21st 11am-5pm, so put the date in your diary.
As well as welcoming back the gardens that have taken part over the years, we would love to see lots of new gardens taking part.
The Colne Valley is wonderful for cycling, it has beautiful scenery and small quaint villages which you can enjoy as you ride along its many small and winding traffic-free country roads. The whole area can be explored without having to endure busy roads. See the cycling pages for local routes.
See my walking pages for details of walks in the area.
