Narborough is a village in Leicestershire.
Although not administratively within the City of Leicester, Narborough clearly falls within the Greater Leicester area.
It is on the Fosse Way, but like many other Anglo-Saxon settlements on this famous Roman highway, it was originally sited just off the road.
All Saints Church dates from the 13th century.
Narborough Station was closed in the 1960s under the Marples Axe, but local pressure forced a reopening.
Half a mile away, across the infant River Soar, is the sister village of Littlethorpe, which boasts a 15th century timber framed dwelling known as the Yeoman's House..
Blue Badge Guide Colin Crosby is available to lead Guided Walks around Narborough for groups.
