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.

Clearance works as part of a major rejuvenation project in the Memorial Garden will commence on Monday 19 March. The aim of the project is to raise awareness of the Garden as a Memorial Garden for those who lost their lives in World Wars I and II, and to make the site more inviting, light and colourful for residents and visitors. Some of the trees will be felled and shrubs and climbers will be cut back or removed, all to be replanted with more attractive, colourful and appropriate specimens.

RECYCLING for residents across the borough is set to become easier from 1 April 2018. Hinckley and Bosworth residents will no longer need to separate paper and card from other recyclable materials using the inner caddy. Instead, paper, card, plastics, glass and cans can all be put together in the main blue lidded recycling bin.
The changes are being made as the contract with the company which was previously recycling for the council comes to an end in March. It follows a full service review which looked at what would be most convenient for residents, encourage even more recycling and provide the best value for money for taxpayers. More »
So from April, recycling collections will be brought in-house and carried out by the council's own employees, meaning there will be more control over this service.
The black inner caddies will be removed by the council's crews during the last collection in March and a new recycling information sticker will be placed on blue lidded recycling bins at the same time telling residents about the change.
