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.

The Parish Council has become aware of a number of issues in relation to advertising / promotional banners and notices placed around the town.
Advertising banners should not be placed on Highways' railings adjacent to the roadside such as those at the corner of Park Street / Main Street. Banners placed here may be removed by Highways or by the Borough Council acting on the instruction of Highways because they cause a distraction to drivers. More »
Advertising banners may be placed on privately owned railings subject to permission from the owner but consideration should be given as to whether the banners or notices could cause a dangerous distraction to drivers.
With regard to notices or flyers on lamp posts, it would be most helpful if the organisations who attach such notices and flyers remove them once the event being promoted has passed. » Less
