Overview
More
The Heritage Centre is a modern building constructed, in part, from three historic buildings. Within the building we have two Heritage Rooms with displays providing an insight into the history of the villages of Mountsorrel and Rothley. Granite's Coffee shop is also housed within the building. Outside you can find the Nunckley Trail, our half mile nature and history walk which winds its way through the woodland south of Nunckley Hill. The Mountsorrel Railway has a platform in the base of the quarry, and we shortly hope to open a small railway museum. (Please note if your Sat Nav does not understand LE7 7UE then use LE7 7SJ)
