North Kilworth Village Profile
The villages of North and South Kilworth lie in the rolling countryside of South Leicestershire, close to the River Avon on the Northamptonshire border. In North Kilworth there are some charming impressive period houses and cottages around the Green which has been designated a conservation area. There is also a canal marina known as North Kilworth Wharf on the edge of the village
At the time of the Domesday Book the two settlements ( North and South Kilworth ) were known as Chivelesworde and Clieveliorde and belonged to the neighbouring village of Stanford on the Avon across the river in Northamptonshire. The settlements were then, effectively, given away by Guy de Reinbudcurt to Benedict who was the founding abbot of Selby and gradually they became known as North and South Kilworth.
