Welcome to the village of Swannington and Swannington Heritage Trust
Swannington Heritage Trust exists to preserve and enhance our legacy of the past for the benefit and enjoyment of people in the present. We maintain former mining and railway sites a mill and 10 acres of woodland. We make our sites and historical information available to everyone and we are keen to work with village people and organisations for the benefit of all. In February 2012 we completely revamped this website, hopefully we have kept the best of the old while adding new facilities. Apart from more information on how to contact, join and volunteer with the Trust, there are walks to enjoy and information on village events, organisations and businesses. Send us your photos and updates and we will publish them.

These interesting views of Hough Mill were taken by a camera mounted in a radio controlled quadcopter. Many thanks to Paul from Coleorton.
Swannington Heritage Trust is documenting a range of walks to suit all abilities and give ideas to both village residents and visitors. This web page is a new feature for 2012 and by the end of the year there will be at least 12 walks in our catalogue, so keep returning to see what is available. Access the Village Walks via the left hand menu.
