Symington 1 is a good place to find out about the history of Market Harborough and its surrounding area. The museum, library and adult learning service can all help both new and experienced researchers in a number of ways.

Services on Symington 1 are part of the Communities and Wellbeing service, which also includes the Record Office for Leicestershire, Leicester and Rutland, based at Wigston

To find out more about using the Local Studies resources, please contact us.

If you wish to borrow items which are available to loan from the Local Studies collections, you will need to become a member of the Leicestershire Library service. You can join online here.
