Colin Crosby Heritage Tours


Ratby is a village in Leicestershire, 5 miles from Leicester and on the edge of Charnwood Forest.

St. Philip and St. James Church is mediaeval, and has a massive West tower which dominates the village and is a landmark for miles around.

In the village centre there are two large 19th century workshops dating from the heyday of the local hosiery industry.

At Old Hays Farm there is an early moated site, while Ratby Bury is a defended Iron Age settlement.

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