Plaque outside Ingarsby Old Hall
The plaque reads:
Ingarsby deserted medieval village.
Ingarsby was a hamlet in the parish of Hungarton, probably dating from the late 9th or early 10th century, established originally as a Danish settlement.
At the time of the Domesday Survey it was a considerable village.
In 1352 the manor was granted to Leicester Abbey, which acquired the remainder of the village by 1458. The abbey enclosed the open fields with hedges and ditches in 1469 and converted most of it to sheep and cattle pastures. This appears to have caused the complete desertion of the village, except for the old hall which still survives.
Clear evidence of the village's existence is seen in the adjacent fields, covering an area of over 30 acres.
This plaque was provided in 1977 by Harborough District Council.
