Eastwell is a village in rural Leicestershire, 6 miles from Melton Mowbray, with a population of around 170. The Eastwell community is vibrant and close-knit. All age ranges are represented including a growing number of young families, and several older people whose families have lived in Eastwell over many generations.
Take a look at our collection of photos taken from events gone by. They include pictures charting the disappearance of the old building to make way for the brand new building we see today.
You'll also find various shots taken from around the village.
What are your memories of life in Eastwell? How has it changed? Have you any stories you'd be willing to share?
What about the village hall? Can you remember the original wooden building?
60 years ago Eastwell was surrounded by ironstone quarries. One of the locomotives used for hauling the ore, Lord Granby, has recently been returned to the village and is being restored by the Eastwell History Group. The Group also runs a fascinating series of talks and presentations.
Eastwell Village Hall was opened in 2015. The superb facilities make it an attractive venue for a whole range of community activities.
The Village Hall has been recognised by Local Authority Building Control (East Midlands), winning the special Chairman’s Award and being Highly Commended in the Public Service Building category. Find out more
