Colin Crosby Heritage Tours


Thurnby is an attractive village in Leicestershire, 4 miles from Leicester, of which it is now almost a suburb.

Most of the village lies to the South of the main road from Leicester to Uppingham.

St. Luke`s Church has Norman origins, but was largely rebuilt in the 19th century. It has a fine central tower.

Four Anglo-Saxon grave markers are now at the Jewry Wall Museum. There is only one other such set in England.

A village pump remains in the square near the church, and there is a small but pleasant green.

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