About Castle Hill Country Park

Established in the early 1980’s, the park takes its name from the dramatic medieval Castle Hill Earthworks, believed to be a Knights Hospitallier monastic grange or sheep farm.

The park covers some 250 acres of grassland, plantation and broad leaved woodland, divided in two by the A46, Leicester Western Bypass.

The southern section, bordering Beaumont Leys, gives excellent views out over Bradgate Park and the Charnwood Hills.

The northern section, bordering Anstey, comprises mainly of flat meadow land near the Rothley Brook with its abundance of birdlife.

The park has an excellent Bluebell Wood, located off the Astill Lodge Road, and some fine ash, oak and willow trees, old hedgerows and stream banks.
