GUIDED HERITAGE WALKS
Guided Walks, led by members of the Society, around the Heritage Trails of any of the Kibworth Harcourt, Kibworth Beauchamp, and Smeeton Westerby villages can be arranged for visiting groups, societies, and individuals. We have found from experience that groups larger than 12 people require two guides, and these would be provided. A suitable donation to the Society would be appreciated.
Please contact Norman Harrison or George Weston for further details.
