Colin Crosby Heritage Tours


Kegworth is a small former market town in Leicestershire, 5 miles from Loughborough.

St. Andrew's Church, with a fine tower and spire, dates from the 13th century.

There are a number of attractive timber framed buildings, some with cruck frames.

Kegworth is close to the M1 and East Midlands Airport. In 1989 there was a plane crash here when a Boeing 737 ploughed on arrival into the motorway embankment, with the loss of 47 lives.

Thomas Moore, the Irish poet, lived in Kegworth for a while in the early 19th century.

There is a deserted mediaeval village site nearby, abandoned when the village moved to its present site.

Blue Badge Guide Colin Crosby is available to lead Guided Walks around Kegworth for groups.
