Welcome to LutterworthHistory.co.uk

LutterworthHistory.co.uk was born out of the desire to present a large archive of historical information about Lutterworth. This was collected over four years researching the history of Lutterworth whilst working on a project for the Victoria County History. The project aim was to document the history of the Parishes of Leicestershire. During this time a large amount of information about the history of Lutterworth was accumulated. Technology was embraced and a website created to showcase this interesting information in an easy-to-access format, with the hope of it being useful to schools, communities, researchers and people from all over the world.

We hope you enjoy discovering more about Lutterworth and if you have any questions or queries, please feel free to drop us an email: enquiries@lutterworthhistory.co.uk
