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 Council has heard from a number of residents that they find the heavy doors at Market Bosworth Doctors' Surgery difficult to open and they wonder if automatic doors can be installed instead. The Parish Council would welcome other parishioners' views on this so if you think automatic doors would be beneficial please contact us so that we can build up an 'evidence base' to put to the Medical Practice through our representative on the Patient Participation Group.
