The Society would like to thank Linda Forryan for the drawing of the Churches at the head of the site
Over many years people in both Wigston Magna and South Wigston have coined “nick names” for things, places and people. These will be lost forever unless we record them.
This list, which is growing all the time, records these nick names and their meanings.
Please feel free to comment on the list and also to add your views and new Nick Names via our e-mail
or you can add your views and new Nick Names on the “Wigston - Remembering the Past” closed group on Facebook
All contributions will be gratefully received.
Please consider donating old photographs of Wigston and the surrounding areas to the Society. We will scan the photographs and return the originals.
