Exploring Small Towns in England

Villages in Leicestershire, UK, are not only famous for their cheese (Red Leicester), but organic farm shops and wildlife.


Tourists use the villages as a halfway point when travelling to England because they are full of scenic drives and old buildings, like the Old Grammar School.  Some parts have allotments where fresh vegetables are grown and, on occasion, chickens are kept. 


Seasonal markets are held all year round, as plenty of the villages are traditionally Market towns.  Currently there is a Christmas market, where handmade decorations and trinkets can be found. 


After exploring my local surroundings I discovered plenty of interesting sights, all documented by my camera.
