Brinsley is a small village just north of the town of Eastwood in Nottinghamshire.

The Friends of Brinsley Headstocks are a voluntary community group, formed over 10 years ago, who help maintain and develop Brinsley’s old mining site.

We work in partnership with Broxtowe Borough Council and other groups to develop the area as a heritage and nature reserve, an amenity for our community and a focus for the mining and literary heritage of our area.

Over the years many local community groups have assisted the Friends with the project and all this hard work has received national recognition with the award of the prestigious Community Green Flag in 2016 and every year since.

Please come and join our group. Volunteers are needed to help us fulfil our annual programme of working parties and committee meetings. Everyone will be made equally welcome.
