Melton Mowbray and District Historical Society

The Melton Mowbray Historical Society meets on the 2nd Friday of the month. Between October and April we hold a programme of talks at the Sage Cross Methodist Church located next to Morrison’s supermarket and near to the Police Station.  This is known as the Winter programme and this is supplemented during the summer months by a programme of Visits and Trips. On meeting nights the best visitor parking is in the pay and display opposite the Police Station. When facing the Police Station turn left toward Morrison’s and enter the Community Centre using the side entrance opposite the supermarket. DO NOT USE the Morrison’s Car Park as a £80 fine is applied automatically after 2 hours (day or night).

Address – Sage Cross Methodist Church & Community Centre, Sage Cross Street, Melton Mowbray. LE13 1RB
