Wigston Parva

Wigston Parva is a tiny village in Leicestershire, 6 miles from Hinckley.

It is close to both the Fosse Way and Watling Street.

St. Mary`s Church church is very small, with nave and chancel in one. It has a Norman door, and a bellcote.

There is a charming Village Green.

A little outside the village is a Bronze Age bowl barrow.

The first recorded windmill in England was at Wigston Parva.
