We are the Local History Society for the parish of Thurcaston and Cropston, in the Charnwood area of Leicestershire.
We are gradually building up this website to include information about our society, the history of our parish and information for family historians.
If you have any information or photos of Thurcaston or Cropston we would love to hear from you. We will not publish any material you provide without your permission. Please contact us.
Our next meeting
Poor Laws, Old and New
Mick Rawle will tell us about welfare before the welfare state.
Tuesday 21 September at 7:30pm
We are back in the Memorial Hall!
We would ask you to wear face masks when moving around the hall. Once seated, we leave the choice to you.
Where we meet
As from January 2020, our meeting place is:
Memorial Hall, Anstey Lane, Thurcaston LE7 7JA
We are unable to meet at the Memorial Hall at the moment (see left).
