The village of Horninghold lies seven miles north-east of Market Harborough in the
county of Leicestershire.
The village is over a thousand years old and following the Norman Conquest in 1066
the village was given to Robert de Todeni, Lord of Belvoir. In about 1076 he gave
the parish to the priory of Belvoir where it remained until the Dissolution of the
Monasteries in the 16th Century. At the beginning of the 20th Century the Hardcastle
family remodeled the village into what is acknowledged today as the 'Prettiest village
The church of St Peter's was built in the 12th Century and is in constant need of
repair and ongoing restoration.
