The Long Whatton History Society consists of a small group of people who wish to investigate the history of the village and collect and preserve as many photographs, records and memories as possible. We have collected a wide range of photographs and newspaper cuttings some dating back over 100 years. Monumental inscriptions of both the Parish and Baptist graveyards have been recorded, together with census records of the village. Complete transcriptions have been deposited with the Leicester Records Office and the Leicester and Rutland Family History Society
