Things to do in Rothley, Leicestershire

Rothley is another stop on the Great Central Railway, a quiet village on the eastern edge of the Charnwood Forest, originally built around Rothley Brook, a tributary of the Soar. Its parish church, with a fine perpendicular tower has a Norman font and rich selection of 16th and 18th century monuments. The churchyard has an even older offering in the form of the 9th century Saxon Cross.

The Knights Templar used Rothley Court (now an hotel), and the 13th century Chapel may still be visited.
