The history of Kibworth Beauchamp, Kibworth Harcourt and Smeeton Westerby is well-documented. These three villages in south Leicestershire share a long and often dramatic past in which their inhabitants have faced the horror ofthe Black Death, have struggled through times of poverty and hardship, and have witnessed the growth of industry following the building of the canals and the railways. In more recent times, the ever-changing landscape of the villages has been recorded diligently by a number of fine local photographers, in particular Alonzo Freeland, Walter Bale and Charles Cooper; three men who made sure that a permanent record was made of the people, the buildings and the events that change communities. Their work is the foundation for this contemporary visual record of the Kibworth villages.
