Welcome to the Grove of the Corieltauvi. A working druidry group based in the heartlands of the Iron Age Corieltauvi tribe, whose territory covered large parts of modern day Lincolnshire, Leicestershire, Nottinghamshire, Derbyshire and Northamptonshire. The grove therefore covers much of what we now call the East Midlands.
Formed in 1996 as a grove, we celebrate the eight-fold seasonal ceremonies, hold monthly meetings, and perform rites of passage (handfastings, Namings, initiations etc). Our monthly meetings are a mix of Grove business, workshops, discussion groups, talks and general socialising in an informal atmosphere.
Both our monthly meetings and our seasonal ceremonies are held at varying locations around our membership area, including our “Hearth Grove” in a beautiful private woodland in the heart of Leicestershire’s Charnwood forest.
The Grove is open to OBOD members only. This simply means that all of our grove members have completed, or are registered on the OBOD correspondence course. Being an OBOD grove means that we are all approach our Druidry from a shared knowledge base.
