Welcome to the Parish of Holbrook

gallery/gaslight gallery, holbrook - 13 april 2014 (3)


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, sports clubs, village hall, schools, garage, shop and a Post Office.
