Welcome to the Parish of Holbrook

Arkwright Hall


The Parish of Holbrook lies about 7 miles north of Derby and includes the part of Coxbench that lies west of the Bottle Brook. 


Holbrook is at the heart of the Parish.  It has many of the advantages of a traditional English village:  a vibrant and diverse community life with churches, pubs, cafe, sports clubs, village hall, schools, garage, shop and a Post Office.

  • Village Hall

The flooring restoration has now been completed and we are in the final stages with a few little bits to be finished before we can say at last our wonderful hall is now completed.


  • Mellors Lane Park

We are continuing to meet with contractors and discuss new playground equipment and will continue to update the Village.


  • Community Speed Watch

The Parish Council has continued discussions with Derbyshire Police regarding Speeding in the Parish. The PC are seeking volunteers to take part in Community Speed Watch. It is a very simple project which will help to cut speeding around the Parish. It only takes around 1 hour to complete the training. We have had some volunteers come forward and have been moving the project forward but there is always a welcome for others to join us so If you would like to take part, please contact Hannah Owen, Parish Clerk on 07738076902 or email


  • Community Cinema

We have enjoyed our second screening at Holbrook Community Cinema. Yesterday was shown on Saturday 16th November and we were delighted so many people were able to attend.

Our next film is the wonderful “The Greatest Showman”, at 7pm on Saturday 15th February 2020 at the Hall. Tickets are now on sale at the shop. Tickets are £3.50 in advance or £4.50 on the door. It will be such a lovely evening and we hope you can all join us to support the event. (Singing along is optional).

We are looking for people to let us know what films they would enjoy watching. We plan to show Downtown Abbey in March time. If you have any other suggestions, please don’t hesitate to contact Hannah Owen.


  • Live and Local

More exciting news, Holbrook Arkwright Hall has now been accepted onto the Live and Local Venue List. This will mean there will be events taking place in the Hall offering variety and culture to the Parish. Visit to view the sort of events we can look forward to when future programmes are released.


  • New Councillor

We are pleased to announce the casual vacancy has now been filled and we welcome Tessa Paul onto the Parish Council.


  • Contacting the Parish Council

The Parish Council is very conscious that the Parish of Holbrook isn’t just Holbrook village so we are always keen to hear from all residents of Holbrook and Coxbench, we would be really keen to hear from you on anything you feel the Parish Council should be aware of.
