Wymeswold parish church
Wymeswold parish church

Wymeswold is a village and civil parish in the Charnwood district of Leicestershire, England. It is in the north of Leicestershire, and north-east of Loughborough. It has a population of about 1,000.

There used to be a school in the village run by Thomas Potter in the nineteenth century on Elm Street.[1] . The school was moved to a site to the south of the village when it expanded in the 1970s. The village was formerly the site of RAF Wymeswold, a tribute to which can now be seen on the wall of Wymeswold pharmacy.

The village has a greengrocers, post office, hairdresser's, specialised pine furniture and gift shop, two pubs and a restaurant. There are many clubs and societies within the village, including WHO (Wymeswold Historical Organisation), Guide and Scout groups, Dancing,Aerobics and Karate Classes, Bowles club, Cricket club, Football club etc.

It is close to Prestwold and Burton on the Wolds in Leicestershire, and the Nottinghamshire villages of Rempstone and Willoughby on the Wolds.

The church was restored in 1844 by Pugin. It contains the Leeke memorial to judge William Leeke who was Lord of the Manor of Wymeswold in the mid-17th century. His widow presented the church with a silver flagon and patten that are now in the Charnwood museum.

This is one of the parishes in which Henry Alford wrote a lot of his Christian hymns.

Now it is a commuter village to the town of Loughborough, and cities of Leicester, Nottingham and Derby, with the services to suit.
