Six Hills

Six Hills is a geographical location in Leicestershire, lying in the middle of a diamond created by Leicester, Loughborough, Nottingham and Melton Mowbray.

It is one of the country's most ancient crossroads.

Six Hills stands on the famous Roman road known as the Fosse Way, which ran from Lincoln via Leicester and the Cotswolds to Exeter.

At this point the Fosse Way is crossed by a prehistoric salt road, starting in the area of the Wash and going into Charnwood Forest, where it seems to have been heading for Beacon Hill.

The Six Hills Golf Club has an excellent restaurant.
