More Roadworks

A further advance notice of a temporary road diversion has been notified. This is to allow repairs to Uppingham Road on the bridge where the road has subsided badly. There is no date for the repairs. Let's hope they're in dialogue with the water company!

The relevant documentation is below.

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.
