About Brocks Hill Country Park

Since opening in 1999, Brocks Hill Country Park has received increasing interest as a place for informal recreation and now attracts over 150,000 visitors per year. It is also an extremely important greenspace for wildlife in Oadby and Wigston Borough.

The Country Park used to be a mixed farm called Grange Farm with the land being influenced by farming practices for hundreds, if not thousands, of years. Evidence of Bronze Age activities has been found within the area, as have medieval shards of pottery. Brocks Hill contains many features that were once widespread in the Leicestershire landscape, including medieval ridge and furrow fields, hay meadows, small ponds, mature trees and woodland compartments. The southern ditch and hedge boundary of the site form part of the original boundary between Oadby and Wigston before they were combined into one Borough.

A network of 3km of hard-surfaced paths allow low mobility and wheelchair access around the Country Park and a number of informal paths run through the woods and meadows. Please note some areas are prone to water-logging due to the heavy clay soil and may become muddy over the winter period.

The park is managed by a dedicated Park Ranger who works alongside the grounds maintenance team and is assisted by the conservation volunteers. The wide range of habitats at Brocks Hill all require sensitive management to ensure their associated flora and fauna can flourish.
