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

  • Village Hall

Saturday 14th September saw the re-launch of the newly refurbished Arkwright Village Hall.  Thank you to everyone who has been involved in the project. We hope you enjoyed the day and are pleased with the improvements.  For more information on the event, including some photographs, click here to go to the Arkwright Hall page.  We are delighted with the turn out to the re-launch activities.


  • Gorsey Piece Access Path Work

A number of Parish Councillors, a Parishioner and the Parish Warden worked very hard in the sweltering heat to lay the floor matting around the paths which gives access to mobility scooters and wheelchairs to Gorsey Piece.  A huge thank you to all involved.  We hope that more people will now be able to enjoy Gorsey Piece.















  • 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 have 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. If you would like to take part, please contact Hannah Owen, Parish Clerk on 07738076902 or email


  • Community Cinema

We were thrilled to launch our Community Cinema to coincide with the grand opening of the newly refurbished Arkwright Hall.  We have some excellent equipment and new comfortable chairs which will make the Hall a great venue for the cinema.  Thank you to everyone who came and enjoyed Rocketman as part of the re-launch of the Hall activities.

We are going to show films throughout the year, if there is something you’d enjoy watching do let us know!  If you would like to be involved in the Community Cinema please do get in touch with Hannah Owen, Parish Clerk.


  • Live & Local

We are very excited to announce that we have been accepted as a potential venue to host Live and Local events in the 2020/2021 programme.  The selection of events will take place in March 2020 and we look forward to announcing what acts will be performing at the Hall.
