Old Rectory Museum Open Day

Community Day Poster Gold Hues 1

Ever wondered what that strange old building on the corner of Rectory Place and Sparrow Hill might be? Perhaps you have not visited lately? Do you want to find out more and visit Loughborough's oldest house?

The Old Rectory was built over 800 years ago for the Lord of the manor of Loughborough. It was given to the church as a home and base for the Rectors in the 1220s and used as a Rectory until 1958. The Community Day is your chance to find out more. We are reaching out to people living in the area surrounding the Rectory: |some of you will be living on what was once Rectory property, but all of you will be living on lands that the Rectory and those who lived in it were associated with. So this is your opportunity to find out:

What the existing building is? What is a Rectory? Who lived there? What changes has the building been through? Why does it look as it does? And to ask questions of our experienced guides. Come and join us!

Events, displays and tours on throughout the day from 10am until 4pm. Find out what it's like to be a volunteer, and maybe join the team to help preserve this treasured building for the next 800 years!
