From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The village’s name originates from the relocation of people when the Ferrers family of Groby turned Bradgate into a deer park. The people who lived within the estate were moved to the “New Town” – or hamlet as it would have been then, at the ford of the river Lin (once located at the junction of Markfield Lane and Main Street).The village was first documented in 1293 and was previously known as “Lyndynford”. The villagers were all tenants of the Ferrers family, and later the Grey family.
