About us

The Loughborough History and Heritage Network is a collaborative project between Loughborough University and the local community.

The Network aims to:

  • foster discussion about the history and heritage of Loughborough and Charnwood by bringing together interested individuals and groups
  • provide a platform for communicating and sharing information about local history and heritage
  • enhance collaboration between Loughborough University and local community history organisations

We are each the keepers of our own stories. Through sharing those stories and our cultural experiences, we can strengthen our sense of identity, citizenship and community.

The Loughborough History and Heritage Network project is funded by the Higher Education Innovation Fund (Enterprise Project Grant) and is a collaboration between the Department of Politics, History and International Relations at Loughborough University, Charnwood Museum and the Loughborough Local Studies Group based at Loughborough Library.
