Market Bosworth Station
The Leicestershire Round
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.

This year's Annual Parish Meeting will take place at Market Bosworth Community Library on 25 May 2017 commencing at 7.00 pm. Refreshments will be available.
Although legally the Meeting must be chaired by the Chairman of the Parish Council, the Annual Parish Meeting is not actually a Parish Council Meeting and no Parish Council business is conducted. Rather, it is a chance for local groups, clubs, societies, schools etc to get together, network and present short reports about their past year. If you would like to attend as a representative of a local community group please feel welcome to do so. Members of the public are welcome to attend.
