The Market Bosworth Society was re-formed in 2005 (we can actually trace our roots back to around 1973 when a small group interested primarily in history began to meet in the High School Community Centre) to provide a focus for residents interested in the history, environment and future of the town. Initial work concentrated on preparing a Conservation Area Character Appraisal document which was completed in 2006 and now forms a reference point against which applications for development are assessed. A copy of this document can be accessed from the Hinckley & Bosworth Borough Council website. Following a significant award of funding from the Heritage Lottery Fund the Society was able to produce theTown Trail which is an illustrated guide around the central conservation area of Market Bosworth and enables the thousands of visitors to the town to fully appreciate the history, views and vistas which we have to offer. The first print run of 6000 copies has been distributed and an updated guide is now available for 50p from outlets both in the town and in the local area around Market Bosworth. The Society has also produced a map highlighting fourteen points of interest within walking distance of the center of Market Bosworth which has proved popular with our more energetic visitors. The Heritage Lottery Fund also enabled us to produce an oral history of Market Bosworth which consists of a number of interviews with older residents of Market Bosworth as well as a more up to date perspective from the pupils of the Congerstone Primary School. The Society recorded some eight hours of interviews which are now available on a CD at a cost of £5. A number of the interviews were used to produce a book ‘Memories Forged in Market Bosworth’ priced at £10. Finally, we have an ongoing project of producing a Virtual Heritage Center to make photos, maps and documents available on-line. You can find the work so far on a sub-division of this site. It is the Society’s intention to continue to extend our archive by recording the memories of residents, copying any family photographs or by purchasing photographs and maps which are felt to be of such significance that they warrant our investment. The society organises a programme of talks, walks and other social events for members throughout the year, including visits to houses and properties of historic interest which may not be generally open to the public. If you are interested in joining us further details may be obtained from our Secretary: Mrs Lynne Palmer info@marketbosworthsociety.com

Constitution: Market Bosworth Society


Society Archive We have recently acquired a copy of a map from the Record Office which describes how Sir Willoughby Dixie closed off the public highway which continued from the top of Church Street around the back of the Church and then crossed the Park to join the road at the junction with Cadeby Lane. He closed the highway by erecting a gate very near to where the gate is now and padlocking it to prevent access. Similarly he padlocked the gate at the back of the Church. Could this be another cause of the dispute mentioned in October’s issue of Aspect when Sir Willoughby attempted to shoot the Reverend Wright? There is no trace of the highway ever being reinstated after Sir Willoughby’s unilateral action. (See OLD MAPS page to view plan) The Society’s archive, complemented by the Oakley Collection, offers a rich insight into the history of Market Bosworth. If anyone, carrying out private research, would like to see what is contained in the archive they should contact Glynis Oakley at The Forge, Park Street. The Market Bosworth Society recognises Copyright and does not knowingly breach Copyright laws.
