Sileby is a village and civil parish in the Soar Valley in Leicestershire, between Leicester and Loughborough. Nearby villages include Barrow upon Soar, Mountsorrel, Ratcliffe-on-the-Wreake, Seagrave and Cossington.


The origins of the village date back to around 840 AD. The area was settled by the Danes - Leicestershire forming part of the Danelaw along with other counties in the vicinity. The name Sileby may in fact come from the Danish name 'Sighulf'.


Sileby is a large village with a population of approximately 9000 and was an industrial village with hosiery, boot & shoe industries. Many of these former factory sites have now been developed for residential housing.
