General Information: - The sought-after suburb of Glenfield is situated just outside the City of Leicester boundary, to the north-west, and is well known for its popularity in terms of convenience for ease of access to the Leicester City centre and all the excellent amenities therein, as well as the market towns of Hinckley, Market Bosworth, Ashby-de-la-Zouch, Coalville, Loughborough and Melton Mowbray, the adjoining Charnwood and New National Forests with their many scenic country walks and golf courses, the East Midlands International Airport at Castle Donington and the A46\M1\M69 major road network for travel north, south and west.

Local shops are on the doorstep for those everyday essentials and treats, and a country market held weekly at St. Peter's Church sells wonderful, home made and local produce, as well as serving tea and coffee. Glenfield also has a prominent place in railway history as a famous line built by Robert Stephenson (son of the famous George Stephenson) from Leicester to Coalville, Ashby-de-la-Zouch and eventually the West Midlands, was the longest of its kind for many years.
