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.

Work on the Memorial Garden rejuvenation project is coming on apace despite the recent bad weather. Check out our picture gallery to see the changes so far: undergrowth, shrub and tree clearance has opened out the area to increase light and space and replacement planting is underway.
Residents and visitors are welcome to drop in to the Memorial Garden at any time they wish to see the transformation taking place. It is intended to complete the project in time to mark the commemoration of the centenary of the end of the First World War, the Gardens being dedicated to those who died during both world wars.
