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.

Trees on Springfield Avenue

Trees on Springfield Avenue

A recent routine survey of trees around Market Bosworth carried out by the County Council's Forestry team found an unacceptable risk of hazard in several of the trees on the service road island on Springfield Avenue.

Most of the trees are in good health but some required remedial pruning work and removal of dead branches from within their canopies. Unfortunately, two sycamores were identified as being in acute decline. One of the trees was felled due to an extensive cavity in the main trunk and excessive die back of the branch structure. The other sycamore is to be retained for as long as is practical. The felled tree will be replaced.
