About Chopwell Regeneration Group

The Chopwell Regeneration Group evolved in April 2017 following a call from Jodie Barwick-bell for self-help in improving the look and feel of Chopwell village.

Fund raising has been by various grant applications and events throughout the year including an Auction Night, Pamper Night, and Pop Up restaurant events.


Different projects have been initiated including litter picking, developing a community orchard, bulb planting, extending the Christmas Lights, installing planter boxes and producing a quarterly newsletter delivered to each household. We hold regular bi-monthly meetings open to anyone in the village.

The Aim

Our premier aim is to take control of the old Chopwell Hotel building and address the vacant properties to improve Derwent Street. In addition, we’d like to bring more visitors into the village by improving vehicle access & signage to Chopwell Wood from Chopwell and make our village a Cycle Hub linking cycle trails in Chopwell and Milkwellburn Woods with the Park and other nearby cycle trails.


We are proud to work with our partners in Chopwell – Friends of Chopwell park, Friends of Chopwell Wood, Forestry Commission, Chopwell Community Centre and Chopwell Banner Group.
