History of Loughborough

Loughborough is a town in the Charnwood borough of Leicestershire.  

In 1622 Loughborough suffered a severe fire which destroyed many of its buildings. The town was rebuilt soon after and continued to build up population and be a busy market town. 

The Great Central Railway is a heritage railway which was formed in 1897 and runs for 8.25 miles which spans between the large market town in Loughborough and Leicester North. 

To honour the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee, a Victorian Park named Queen’s Park was inaugurated in 1899. 

Loughborough Town Hall is a striking building constructed in 1855 as a corn exchange and ballroom. 

Dating back to the 14th Century is the All Saints Church of Loughborough and is situated on the highest part of its old town.
