Medbourne's Web Site
Welcome to this site for the village which combines three village sites: The Village web site, the Parish Council web site and that for the Village Hall. This follows a decision by Leicestershire County Council to terminate, in August 2016, the infrastructure hosting the first two of those sites.
We hope you find that the site provides a rewarding browsing experience. Comments are welcome; please send them to the Site Administrator.
Medbourne is situated in the Welland Valley in southeast Leicestershire; it falls within Harborough District. Main Street, the spine of the village, has postcode LE16 8DT.
Medbourne is an ancient village with a medieval stone bridge over a brook, a beautiful church and a traditional pub. Medbourne was originally a Roman settlement, on the route from Leicester to Colchester. The village lies in a valley carved out by the Medbourne Brook, which is a tributary of the river Welland.
Nowadays, Medbourne is a conservation area whose historic stone cottages, large elegant houses and leafy walks combine to make the village one of the most picturesque in the Welland Valley.
