Welcome to the site

Site Editor and Site Administrator, Marion Vincent MBE, with her Certificate of Competence to be in charge of the website and its content December 2009

The original Rothley village website was a project set up by Leicestershire County Council in October 2002 under www.leicestershirevillages.com but due to financial cuts the total content was deleted on the 1st September 2016. Rothley Parish Council also needed to find a new home at the same time so it was agreed to combine the sites and they came 'live' on the 1st September 2016. The work of building the site content was completely done throughout the county by volunteers.

It has been a tremendous job transferring all the data about Rothley history but it is essential that written records are not lost but preserved for future generations.

As I have been working through the pages, especially The Landscape of Rothley, it is clear to see how much Rothley has changed in a very short space of time. Perhaps someone will update these pages in years to come to keep the record of Rothley alive.

Rothley Village Website has won two awards for Overall Content 2006 and Overall Content 2007 and presented to Marion Vincent at the annual meeting of website volunteers held at Beaumanor Hall, Woodhouse, Leicestershire, hosted by Leicestershire County Council.

Do you have memories to share?

If you have any history of Rothley, especially old photographs, then please contact me if you would like to share them on this site. These pages are very popular, not just in Rothley but all over the country and the world. Many interesting stories have come from America and Australia and last week I added an item from New Zealand.
