Locality


Stoney Stanton is a large village in the Blaby district of Leicestershire, England with a population of over 3,454. Nearby villages include Croft, and Sapcote.

History


Even in the eighteenth century, Parish records show that gravel and stone was being removed from Carey (or quarry) Hill in the centre of the village. That would later, in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries be quarried for its valuable stone, along with Lanes Hill (now the water-sports & diving centre known as Stoney Cove), Clint Hill, and Hall’s Court.
