Breedon - The Location - BREEDON ON THE HILL is a small village which offers a good range of local amenities such as a post office and newsagents, two pubs with restaurants, school and the well known church which is located on top of the hill. The village is situated between the two local market towns of Melbourne and Ashby de la Zouch and is also within easy reach of the A50, the M1 and M42 motorways, with good access to many Midland towns and cities, and Nottingham East Midlands Airport.

Property History - In the 1860s the cottage was home/office of the local 'bobby', PC Barrett. In August 1886 he was found with fatal head injuries on the village green beside the brook as it runs past the old chapel. The culprits were local men James Banton and Joseph Gadsby who met with PC Barrett late at night after they had been drinking heavily in the Lime Kiln pub. They had a grudge against the policeman because they had been fined 5 shillings and had poaching equipment confiscated. It is reported that PC Barrett was carried back to his house on Main Street and pronounced dead by a doctor from Melbourne. Banton was hanged at Leicester prison in November and later Gadsby became insane and certified.
