County Arms (Glen Parva)

The County Arms is a former pub in Glen Parva, to the South of Leicester.

Built in the 1930s, it was a handsome building of the time. Unfortunately, it closed around the turn of the Millennium, and now, surrounded by fencing, looks sadder and sadder with each passing year.

It was built at a busy point, beside the bridge carrying the A426 over the canal towards Lutterworth and Rugby, and on the corner of the road that leads to Wigston Magna.

Nearby was the coal wharf, where coal was delivered for Glen Parva and for Blaby a short distance away, just across the River Sence.

The pavement outside the County Arms is the starting point for some of Blue Badge Guide Colin Crosby’s Guided Walks.
