Welcome to the Hoby & District Local History Society


The Hoby & District Local History Society is a voluntary organisation. The Society brings together people from all walks of life who are interested in the local history of the Leicestershire villages of Hoby, Rotherby, Ragdale and Brooksby and the District around them. If you have ever felt inspired to find out about the history of a local building or family or just want to understand how the community has evolved over the years, you will know how interesting this is. So why not join our group of local history enthusiasts? As a member you will be able to enjoy an interesting programme of lectures and participate in research projects on any aspect of our local history, learn more about our heritage and how you can help to protect it for future generations. We hope that you will want to find out more about us and will enjoy browsing through our website. Walking tours of Hoby are available, see Hoby Village Trail for details.
