Heritage

South Luffenham has a rich and diverse heritage, from Conservation Areas, Listed Buildings to recognised archaeological finds and landscapes.    Gradually heritage information on the village website will be added to, but to start there are a number of resources you might want to have a look at, the first is the Historic Environment Record (HER) it is an important starting point for anyone interested in the archaeology, built heritage, and history of an area. They can provide information on a wide variety of buildings and sites, from finds of prehistoric flint tools to medieval castles and Second World War pillboxes.

HERs are a primary source of information for planning, development-control work, and land management.   Most of the information is available online http://www.heritagegateway.org.uk/gateway/   if you type “south luffenham” in the search engine, all the records held will appear, most are in Leicestershire and Rutland.
