Bosworth in Bloom 2017 - Rainbows
Winner of many Britain in Bloom awards and well known for its characterful Market Place, interesting shops and popular eateries, Market Bosworth is a small market town that can trace its history back to a settlement in the Bronze Age. The Battle of Bosworth took place to the south of the town in the village of Upton in 1485. If you take a walk around the town you will find shields and Tudor roses as well as street nameplates decorated with Henry VII's dragon and Richard III's boar in recognition of the Battle. There are also three schools and three churches and with the Country Park, Water Park and Battlefield Line Railway within walking distance there is plenty to do for all ages.
The Parish of Market Bosworth includes the village of Far Coton as well as the settlement of Market Bosworth. Market Bosworth Parish Council provides your local services.

On 22 and 23 July two test pits will be dug on the Parish Field on Park Street, CV13 0LL, coinciding with the Leicestershire Festival of Archaeology. There will also be a metal detecting demonstration. Members of the public are welcome to come along to watch the test pits being dug and to find out more about archaeology between 11.00 a.m. and 3.00 pm. More »
