Kibworth village - Story of England
Following the acclaimed Michael Wood Story of England BBC TV series in 2010 (also now on YouTube), volunteers in the south Leicestershire villages of Kibworth Beauchamp, Kibworth Harcourt and Smeeton Westerby were awarded a Heritage Lottery Grant to provide a heritage legacy.
The funding has helped the production of coloured, free heritage guide booklets - Kibworth Guide Booklet - which includes walking trails around all three villages and descriptions of many locations of interest. These can be found in the Kibworth Community Library, St Wilfrid’s Church, some High Street shops and food outlets, and from the plastic container by the notice board opposite Jubilee Green on Main Street, Kibworth Harcourt. They are ideal for an hour or two of leisurely walking for each trail. Nine interpretation panels are placed at various points around the three heritage trails to provide more information at each location.
There are numerous food and drink outlets in the three villages
The heritage trails are suitable for all weathers - provided umbrellas are available if raining!
