in the year 1903
Until the year 1903 Thurmaston was divided into the townships of North
and South Thurmaston, in which year a County Council Order made the
townships into one civil parish. The new parish was, by Edwardian standards,
described as a large village by the compilers of Kelly's Directory
of 1904. The houses, shops, work places, public houses, and places of
worship that constituted the village were largely strung out along the
Fosse Road, as may be seen from the above map..
