The Leicestershire town of Loughborough is a historic market and university town that holds regular markets and an annual street fair, but is also famed for its industrial heritage. It is the home of the world's largest bell foundry, dating from medieval times but known more recently as John Taylor's Bellfounders, where the bells for St Paul's Cathedral, York Minster and many others were cast. Many famous athletes have studied at Loughborough University, including Sebastian Coe and Paula Radcliffe. In this book local author Lynne Dyer reveals the hidden history of Loughborough, from its medieval and industrial past to the present day. Secret Loughborough explores the lesser-known episodes and characters in the history of the town through the centuries. With tales of remarkable people, unusual events and buildings lost or hidden, and fully illustrated throughout, it will appeal to all those with an interest in this Leicestershire town.
