Richard III is buried here after being slain at Bosworth Field.
London Road is posh and Indian. Loughborough Road is entirely sub-continental. Shoes are still made in Northampton ,where Church’s shoe factory is pivotally central in the town ,but not in Leicester. Within one generation Guajarati and Punjabi own and dominate the city. The River Sour is a holy Hindu river. Remarkable since Hinduism was tied geographically to Indian soil. Cycle to Loughborough via the Grand Union Canal, River Sour, Zouch, Hathern, via Syston or Swithland. Southwards via the Grand Union Canal to Husbands Bosworth via Foxton Locks or branch to Market Harborough. Continue from Husbands Bosworth to Rugby. Or cut across to Husbands Bosworth from Leicester via Arnesby.
