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.

Leicestershire County Council Highways has agreed to a Temporary Traffic Regulation Order on Tinsel Lane.
A temporary emergency road closure is required until further notice. The road will be closed between the A444, Wellsborough, to Coton Lane, Far Coton.
The Temporary Traffic Regulation Order will be implemented for public safety to allow Leicestershire County Council to undertake works on the carriageway, due to heat damage, which has left the carriageway in an unstable condition.

Heritage Open Days are scheduled to take place across the borough during two weekends in September.
One of the Open Days features Bosworth Hall Hotel in Market Bosworth where this grade II listed building will be hosting guided tours at 1pm and 3pm on Thursday 6 September.
The Hall was home to Lady Florence Dixie, who lived there from 1855 to 1905. Florence married Lord Alexander Beaumont Churchill Dixie in 1875 at the age of 19. They had two sons and lived happily, leading an adventurous life together until they were forced to sell the family home in 1890 to pay off gambling debts. Lady Dixie was a keen sportswoman and played a key role in establishing women's association football. Also a keen traveller and writer with a strong interest in politics, Lady Dixie was an ardent feminist and a member of the National Union of Women's Suffrage Societies. More »
St Peter's Church will also be open as part of the Heritage Open Day programme.
