"Streets Through Time" 
An architectural and social history of Harlaxton

This project was launched in the Spring of 2023 to document as much of the social history of the village that may be available. It commenced by concentrating on one street over time, the first being  Church Street. Now the project has been expanded to cover all streets and roads in Harlaxton village. This is very much an ongoing and constantly evolving project which is dependent on any information current and previous residents and their families can provide to the Harlaxton History Society.

If you have any information or anecdotes about events and people in the village no matter how insignificant they may appear, please contact us at

Sale of the Harlaxton Manor Estate in 1937

In 1937, having recently inherited the  Harlaxton Manor Estate, Major Philip John Sherwin Pearson-Gregory put the entire estate up for sale and employed Messrs Jackson Stops to auction the estate off. Jackson Stops drafted a Particulars of Sales document in readiness for the auction which was held on 28th September 1937. This document was available to all prospective buyers and provided information on all the period properties and land within the estate listing all the tenants at that time and the rent they were paying. This document has proved invaluable in research information for the Streets Through Time project and is also an interesting read for current residents of the village. It is now available for viewing and download here - Particulars of Estate Sale. Please note it is a large file (110Mg) and a good source of information re. recent history of the village. There is also a corresponding map of the estate which identifies where the Lots are located in the village. This can be viewed and downloaded here - Estate sale map Plan 2
