Welcome to our website

Kirby Muxloe is a small village in south-west Leicestershire, England. The Kirby Muxloe History Group is dedicated to preserving and sharing the rich heritage of our village. 


We actively promote our group through displays in St Bart’s Church Hall and the library. We also have a monthly feature in “The Local" magazine which is a free publication and circulated to 6,800 households in the surrounding area.

Our aim is to foster a sense of community whilst undertaking projects such as regular meetings, exhibitions, interviews and studies of the older buildings in our village.


We invite you to explore our collection and learn more about our village’s fascinating past. Our archive offers a wealth of information about Kirby Muxloe’s people, places and events.
