Whitwick Historical Group logo

Whitwick Historical Group is based at the Old Station Building in Whitwick. The group houses a large collection of resources which are available to members and non-members of the group.

Resources include photographs, maps, documents and artefacts and our media room provides access to microfiche, census returns, CDs etc. All these resources can be used by family history researchers as well as people that are interested in the history and heritage of the area, and experienced friendly experts are always on hand to help you.

The group enjoys an enviable reputation for producing its own publications, it arranges public talks on local heritage topics, produces a quarterly newsletter and annual calendar and presents regular exhibitions on national topics as well as local issues. Come and see us to discuss how we can help you with your research. Perhaps you have some old photographs that you would like the group to place in its archive?

Take a look at the resources we offer and call in to see us - we'll be pleased to see you.

Whitwick Dig

Whitwick Big Dig

Enthusiastic volunteers helped to make Whitwick’s Big Dig a wonderful community event. Over the weekend of 25th and 26th July, over 150 local people gave their time, energy and their gardens to support the project.

The event was organised by Charnwood Roots guided by project manager, Julie Attard. It was a positive collaboration between her team from the University of Leicester, professional archaeologists and groups such as the Young Archaeologists, Whitwick Scouts, Whitwick & District U3A, homeowners and their families and Whitwick Historical Group. Members of the Historical Group had supported the project during the planning stage and participated in all aspects of the Big Dig from allowing use of their gardens to washing the finds.
