Narborough & Littlethorpe Heritage Society

Welcome to the Society home page where you can find out more about our events and outings. Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions.

We have a event most months with a guest speaker and organise one or two outings per year. We offer a membership option with reduced entrance rates. See below for more information.

The Society would be very pleased to hear from anyone with photographs, postcards, items or information (ancient or modern) regarding the Parish. We intend to build up an archive of information, and would very much like as much help as possible in achieving this. (We would scan, copy or photograph the items, so we aren’t asking that you donate them to the Society.) Penny Immins has got agreement from the Leicestershire Libraries Service that material can be held at Narborough Library, where it can be made generally available. It would also be helpful to have the material to improve the information on the web-site.
