Our paperback history of Castle Donington has now been published, and was very well received at our fantastic launch event held at Donington Hall on 22 March. The book contains 133 pages and tells the story of this north-west Leicestershire village from earliest times to the present day. You may have visited the airport or Donington Park, but did you know that Castle Donington was once a medieval market town, that three lords of the manor were executed in the 14th century, or that there were riots and a burning in effigy in the 18th century ? You can purchase a copy online, or it is available as an e-book.
