HCI Rally to Market Bosworth
25th May 2022 to 30th May 2022 (5 nights) at Market Bosworth RUFC
Peter Milne, Margaret Foreman Dave and Caroline Hanson invite you to join them in rural Leicestershire, for the late May Bank Holiday weekend for a relaxed and informal rally at the ancient town of Market Bosworth. The town dates back to the bronze age and received its Royal Charter from Edward 1. It has a 14th century church and pub and lies close to the site of the 1485 Battle of Bosworth Field where Richard 111 became the last English King to be killed in battle on home soil.
A mile to the west lies the Ashby canal and the preserved ‘Battlefield’ steam railway. The rally site is all hardstanding and we have the use of the clubhouse in the evening. Own sanitation is essential although the clubhouse toilets will be available in the evenings. The site lies approximately half a mile from the town with access through the adjacent country park. There are easy walks from the site and a bus stop 300yds from the site entrance. Attractions in the vicinity include the National Memorial Arboretum, Calke Abbey, Twycross Zoo and Drayton Manor theme park. Derby and Burton upon Trent lie to the north and Leicester to the east. Mkt Bosworth has a small supermarket, pubs, cafes and other retailers.
As the following weekend is ‘The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee’ expect some right Royal goings on! The Sparkling Afternoon Tea is confirmed, a street party, games in the evenings and other things we can think up!
The days will be for your own pleasure, but no doubt there will be organised walks and/or bike rides. Unfortunately Camping costs have risen for next year, but all this for right Royal fun is now £90 per unit.
