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.
