The 200 year old granite barn from Kinchley Lane, Rothley, was once used as a mess room for German prisoners of war who worked on the Swithland Reservoir dam during World War 1. The expansion of the Mountsorrel Granite Quarry would have seen it lost, but now it forms part of the Heritage Room and upstairs Community Room.
