Archaeological Festival Walks 2022
The Greater Wigston Historical Society will again be taking part in the Festival in 2022, providing historical evening walks of Wigston Magna and the Wigston Cemetery, led by Peter Cousins.
Both the walks will be £4.00 per person, with all proceeds going to the Greater Wigston Heritage Centre and the Leicestershire & Rutland Fieldworkers. Both walks last just over 1 hour.
The dates for the walks are:
Wigston Cemetery Walks at 7.00pm
Tuesday 5th July & Tuesday 12th July
The walk covers the founding and history of the Cemetery, along with revealing detailed research into several of the people at rest there.
Wigston Walks at 7.00pm
Thursday 7th July & Thursday 14th July
The walk starts with the history of Wigston, and takes you on a walk detailing many of the historic buildings, some of which are listed, and some of the famous local people commemorated on the blue plaques.
