University undergraduates researched the religious histories of these parishes in summer 2012 as part of a VCH project, kindly funded by the University of Leicester.

These draft part-entries for several parishes are shared here as works-in-progress. Any comments or queries concerning them should be addressed to the county editor, Dr Pamela Fisher, by email.
