The Society was founded by local businessmen, in 1867, as one of the new 19th century ‘permanent’ building societies. Unlike the original building society model, which had arisen in the English Midlands in the 1770s, these new societies were open to new members on an ongoing basis and not intended to terminate once each original member had purchased a house.

It is one of the five building societies based in Leicestershire. Earl Shilton, Hinckley & Rugby, Loughborough, Market Harborough, Melton.

Currently the Society maintains three branches of its own, in the town of Loughborough, in Derby and in Long Eaton, Notts., and it operates via agencies in West Bridgford and Southwell.[citation needed]
