There is another Coalville, Iowa USA. It's just south of Fort Dodge with the Des Moines River running by or through it. It is also connected to Kalo, but I'm not sure where one stops and the other starts. I dont know if this is ok or not but I will post a bit about it bewlow.
Cheers to the Brit from across the pond.
There are People all over the country that grew up in Coalville, but very few know about our little community. On the next few pages you will be able to learn and experience some of the "FUN" things we remember from growing up in Coalville, Iowa.
----------
Coalville is a typical country town in Iowa and is situated in a good farming area. Webster County is known for its fertile soil. But our early settlers that came to this little community came for one purpose, and that was for the COAL that could be mined. The town originated in 1859 although it was never incorporated because of the Coal Mining, it was named Coalville, Iowa. In the late 1800's Coalville was a bustling little village boasting of a general store, a butcher shop, a pool hall, a bowery, several taverns, a school and three churches. Because of the coal that was being mined in the area Coalville had a real boom in population. Miners came to work the mines and the population grew from 529 in the year 1890 and it went to 870 in the year 1900. Our little comunity is 7 miles south-east of Fort Dodge, Iowa off the new # 20 Highway. The Coalville Grocery is a great place for people to stop in, meet and eat. Take a little trip out to Coalville, stop in at the grocery, fill up your gas tank and meet some of the nice people that live in Coalville. Hey... and while you are there, buy a RAFFLE TICKET to help support the Otho/Kalo/Coalville Scholarship Fund!!

I purchased some elf ear tips from that company about a year ago. The label on the product package indicates the following address:

Steptoes Products - SJNC Group
Coalville, LE67 3JA, England

Hope that helps you.

After also trying tolocate Syeptoes, I too have been unable to. However, I located a compay online that offers the same costume ear tip products that I purchased and more, if that is what you are also looking for. It is ARADANI COSTUMES - www.aradanicostumes.com .

Hello Suzanne:

I too was born in Coalville, Leicestershire. I am now living in Canada.
Much different here. I have wonderful memories of my childhood there though.
