      WIGSTON STREET NAMES PROJECT

There are many street names in Wigston that have hidden meanings and some have disappeared altogether. This list, which is growing all the time, records these names and their meanings. In conjunction with the Greater Wigston Historical Society we are undertaking research on these names and compiling a master index.

To view the current state of this project you can download the date on the links below in either Word or .pdf formats. You are welcome to view/print and study the files and send any observations, changes or additions to: chairman@lrfhs.org.uk
