Welcome to Visit Lutterworth

Lutterworth, a small but ever growing market town in the southern most point of Leicestershire. Will it’s easy commuting to many town and cities from London to Sheffield, it becomes more of a dormitory town.

Though, Lutterworth does have a very distinguished past.

1066 Mentioned in the Doomsday books.

14th Century the birthplace of “The Morning Star of the Reformation” and the first-ever translation of the bible to English, by John de Wycliffe

1836 The Lutterworth Town Hall, designed by a well known Hinckley designer – Joseph Hansom, of the Hansom Cab fame.

1940s The development and production of the first jet engines, by Frank Whittle.
