Rearsby's history

The story of Rearsby begins in the 9th century when it was established as a Danish settlement.

The life and times of the village have been recorded in numerous documents over the centuries. In 1984 Rearsby Local History Society produced a book called 'Rearsby, the Story of a Village' which brings together information from these sources. Much of what you will read in the following pages has been taken from this book.

The Charnwood Arts website also contains information about the history of Rearsby. To go there now, Click here
