17th CENTURY EXHIBITION

A DISPLAY of 17th century life in Langham can be seen at Rutland County Museum until tomorrow.

Parish registers, which date from 1559, are on display. These have been loaned by the Record Office for Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland.

A copy of a map of the parish prepared in 1624 by the Exton Estate can also be seen along with a rolling digital presentation of Langham’s wider history.

The exhibition is comprised of material from a much larger exhibition held in Langham in 2009 as part of a research project funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund.

The resulting, much acclaimed book, The Life and Families of 17th Century Langham will be on sale at the museum for those who wish to delve more deeply. Langham Village History Group’s research into parish records, land leases, wills, inventories and other documents have provided a fascinating insight into life the 1600s including: the role of the church; the state and the Lord of the Manor; education, farming; transport and charities and other aspects of rural life. Opening times are Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday 10am to 4pm. Admission is free
