In 1870-72, John Marius Wilson's Imperial Gazetteer of England and Wales described Freaks Ground like this:
FREAKS-GROUND, an extra-parochial tract in Leicester district, Leicestershire. Pop., 7. Houses, 2.
The location is that shown on a 1902 large scale Ordnance Survey map of this part of Leicester (on-line at http://www.oldtowns.co.uk/Mapshop_Leics/Leicester_FreaksGround1902.htm, accessed 11/1/2011).
A Vision of Britain through Time includes a large library of local statistics for administrative units. For the best overall sense of how the area containing Freaks Ground has changed, please see our redistricted information for the modern district of Leicester. More detailed statistical data are available under Units and statistics, which includes both administrative units covering Freaks Ground and units named after it.
