Melton Mowbray History Trail


The Melton Mowbray History Trail will take you on a journey around the town centre looking at the town’s rich and fascinating history going back 100’s of years.

Today, Melton Mowbray is known as the Rural Capital of Food and famous for Pork Pies and Stilton Cheese. But there is far more to the town’s history than just food, although it does play an important part in it.

We will look at events and people (including several rich and famous) that have shaped our town into what we know today.

From Lords of the Manor, the Knights of St John of Jerusalem and the Crusades, to the Bedehouses and the history of the markets plus lots more.
