Welcome to Swithland

Swithland is a quiet but beautiful village in the Charnwood borough of Leicestershire. It is located in the ancient Charnwood Forest between Cropston and the parish of Woodhouse and Woodhouse Eaves. Although small, it has a village hall, a church, and a pub. The village is known for the slate that was once quarried in the area which is reflected in many of the lovely houses in the village.
