Information Board at the Main Street car park

This information board at the car park on Main Street was installed in 2016.

This resulted from a lot of hard work by members of Markfield Local History Group with the support of the Parish Council, and shows some of the older buildings within the village and their history. At the Annual General Meeting of the group, held in January 2017, we learnt that the Parish Council is hoping to place a larger information board here and reposition this smaller board in another location within the village. 

The locations are:

1.   The Co-op on Main Street

2.   The Bull's Head and Forest Road corner

3.   The Miner's Institute, Main Street

4.   Saw Pits Green and Trinity Methodist Church, Main Street

5.   The Congregational Hall and Clara Hewitt's shop, Main Street

6.   The George, Main Street

7.   Main Street, opposite where Neville Drive is now

8.   Dilks' Bakery, Queen Street

9.   Spence's Bakery, Main Street

10.  Wardle's Butchers, at the top of Main Street

11.  The Post Office and the Red Lion, Main Street

12.  St Michael's and All Angels Church

13.  Joyner's Corner, Main Street

14.  Main Street, opposite Saw Pits Green
