Market Bosworth Station
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.

A major consultation has launched on Leicestershire County Council's future plans and priorities.
Since 2010, the County Council has saved £200m but increasing demand for services, plus uncertainty over Government funding, means the County Council needs to save another £75m over the next four years.
The consultation runs until 8 September. Your views are important and we'd encourage you to have your say.
