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.

Coronavirus Resident Support Scheme Launched
In response to the Coronavirus outbreak Hinckley & Bosworth Borough Council has been supporting local residents who are self isolating and have no support networks through a Resident Support Scheme. So far over 700 residents and tenants have been contacted and assistance provided where needed through the council and the voluntary and community sector. The service prioritises those people who have no one else to help and who are the most vulnerable, for example those over the age of 70, those with an underlying health condition, individuals who are on their own and feeling isolated and families that are struggling to cope. More »
Assistance can be given to:
- Link people into local support networks where these are in place.
- Help with emergency food access and ongoing shopping assistance
- Advise on collection of prescriptions and other essentials
- Social contact for those who are lonely
- Advise on financial help for those who are worried about their personal finances
- Advise on how to look after your health and wellbeing whilst self isolating.
Executive member for Community Safety at the borough council Cllr Michael Mullaney said: "we know there will be many people in our communities who need help and support during these times and we have set up this support scheme for people who are self-isolating and may need some help as they have no support networks, like friends, family or neighbours. We are working with a range of local agencies, charitable organisations and local volunteers.
"I would also like to remind residents that whilst we need to socially distance, we also need to look out for each other. If you're in a fortunate position, then can I ask you to volunteer to help those in our borough. You can register your interest with Next Generation, who is already working with registered charities in the area. Visit www.nextgenhinckey.org or call 01455 632984."
If you are self-isolating or know somebody who is and has no or limited support networks such as friends, family or neighbours please call 01455 238141 or visit www.hinckley-bosworth.org.uk/coronasupport
People are encouraged to use the online services in the first instance to help with the high volume of calls. » Less
