Early this century Newtown Linford was a rural estate village, part of the Leicestershire property of the aristocratic Greys of Groby, whose vast Victorian pile, Bradgate House, straddled the boundary between Newtown Linford and Groby. In 1925 the Greys sold the estate, beginning a process of change which has transformed village life. Throughout 1993/4 a group of villagers met regularly and recorded their memories, some of which date back to before the first world war. The result is this 64 page booklet, published in 1994, illustrated with 44 archive photographs of the buildings and people of the village.
