Located close to the very centre of England, the village of Appleby Magna is mid-way between Birmingham, Leicester and Derby.

Appleby Magna is a quintessential English village set in the beautiful rolling Leicestershire countryside, yet just a mile from the convenience of the M42.

With its own post office and general store, several quaint pubs; the Black Horse, the Crown Inn and further south in Appleby Parva, the Appleby Inn; and a church dating back to the 14th century, it retains its historic charm with a mixture of old and more recent housing, it is highly regarded as a very desirable and pleasant place to live. Village life is enhanced by a number of clubs and societies including the cricket club, football club, a scout group and its own village website.

Neighbouring villages and towns - Measham, Tamworth and Ashby-de-la-Zouch provide alternative venues for shopping and dining. Nearby Market Bosworth is an architecturally picturesque town steeped in history - being close to the site of the last famous battle of the Wars of Roses, at which Richard III lost his life.

The local primary school (Ofsted ‘Outstanding’ at last inspection) is sited at The Sir John Moore School Building, which is also the venue for many local events and activities, a museum and heritage centre. Local landowner Sir John Moore was Lord Mayor of London in 1681 and wishing to use his wealth to benefit his home county, he financed the building of a school next to his family estate built in 1697. The building, based on an original design by Sir Christopher Wren, is Grade I Listed and now in the care of the Sir John Moore Foundation.
