The Village

Medbourne is an ancient village with a medieval stone bridge over a brook, a beautiful church and a traditional pub. Medbourne was originally a Roman settlement, on the route from Leicester to Colchester. The village lies in a valley carved out by the Medbourne Brook, which is a tributary of the river Welland.

Nowadays, Medbourne is a conservation area whose historic stone cottages, large elegant houses and leafy walks combine to make the village one of the most picturesque in the Welland Valley.
