From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Quorn is a village in Leicestershire, England, near the university town of Loughborough. The name was shortened from Quorndon in 1889, to avoid postal difficulties owing to its similarity to the name of another village, Quarndon, in neighbouring Derbyshire. The village’s original name is thought to be derived from the Old English cweorndun, meaning “hill (dun) where millstones (cweorn) are obtained”.
