Old Dalby

Old Dalby is part of the parish of Old Dalby & Broughton and lies to the west of Melton Mowbray, Leicestershire close to the Nottinghamshire border.  It is quite a small village with around 1,430 people, including the settlement of Queensway, living in or around the village.

Old Dalby has a very active community with many groups such as netball, cricket, choir, church, toddlers, scouts and wine club. The WI was disbanded in 2018. The village also boasts the Old Dalby Singers who rehearse most Tuesdays throughout the year in the Village Hall. 

Our children are educated at the preschool and primary school.

We even have our very own Belvoir Brewery and The Crown Inn.

This event has brought thousands of visitors to the village who have enjoy a varied and exciting array of entertainment and help raise funding for many of the many groups in Old Dalby. Unfortunately, too few residents were able to help organise the event for 2019 so it has been suspended for this year. We look forward to 2020 but….
