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. We strive to make Market Bosworth a better place to live, work and play. Our website includes a wealth of information about how we conduct business and what we do. Use the search engine or browse the site to find whatever you are looking for. If you can't find the information you require then please contact us.
Thanks to the hard work of the Bosworth in Bloom team and many local community volunteers, Market Bosworth has won the 2017 East Midlands Britain in Bloom competition in the large village category, achieving an RHS gold medal and 186 points out of 200. The judges also awarded various discretionary awards. Well done!

Hinckley and Bosworth Borough Council recently awarded a grant to NatureSpot to establish a wildlife website section for every parish in the district including Market Bosworth.
NatureSpot is a Leicestershire educational charity that aims to help the public to learn about and identify local wildlife and encourage community participation in its web-based wildlife recording and mapping tool for Leicestershire. The web site, at www.naturespot.org.uk, launched in 2011 and has created a reference library that so far showcases over 5,500 different Leicestershire wildlife species, all illustrated with photos taken in the county by local people, providing a unique learning guide to local nature.

The NatureSpot parish sites enable local people to help map the natural history interest of their area – including that found in gardens and the general parish landscape, as well as defined sites such as parks, churchyards and road verges. These records help to recognise and promote the value and special identity of local landscapes and create dynamic wildlife maps for the area. NatureSpot is supported by Leicestershire County Council and the Leicestershire and Rutland Wildlife Trust and all records are shared with Leicestershire Records Centre and other relevant bodies to help build the ecological knowledge base of the county - essential for effective conservation.
Anyone can add a wildlife record and parishioners are encouraged to add information to the website by using the above links. » Less
