About Us

Kirby Muxloe is a small village in south-west Leicestershire, England. The Kirby Muxloe Local History Group is committed to promoting and preserving the heritage of our village.

We arrange a programme of meetings throughout the year, with both external and internal speakers who talk on topics of historical interest. Meetings are open to all and visitors are welcome.

Directions to our meetings: On the Hinckley Road (A47) going out from Leicester, go over the bridge over the M1, then turn right at the traffic lights signposted “Kirby Muxloe”. This takes you onto Kirby Lane. Follow the road over the railway bridge, go down a hill, then up a hill, but just before you reach the top, turn right onto Main Street. Go past the Royal Oak on your right. The Church Hall is then a little further on your right. Please park in the car park just after the hall. For sat navs, use LE9 2AP and house no. 76. Map shown on right.

If coming from Hinckley direction, turn left after the Red Cow pub. This takes you onto Kirby Lane. Now follow directions as above.

Can you help us ?

We are always looking for old pictures, slides, newspaper clippings, documents, etc. relating to Kirby Muxloe's past. Do you have any that we could borrow to copy or transcribe ? Even "modern" events of the 1960's, 70's and 80's are of interest.

Our thanks go to ...

RAL Display Marketing (https://www.ral-display.co.uk/) for printing a free advertising banner for us ! It will be on show outside the Village Hall at our Exhibition (see Programme above) on 17th November.
