Sheepy Magna and Parva


The pretty villages of Sheepy Parva and Magna, lie in rural Leicester, surrounded by remarkably un-spoilt countryside. With easy access via the A5 to the M1, M6 and M42, the villages are well connected in all directions to the not too distant Birmingham, Leicester and other parts of the country. The villages also offer plenty of opportunities for walking on the many local paths and tracks. The Villages are equipped with a Pub, Italian restaurant, Church and School.



Sheepy Magna and Pava get their names due to their location near the River Sence, Sheepy deriving from the old English Sceap, a grassy island.The villages are mentioned in the Doomsday book, notably enjoying a period of large economic expansion, however the villages probably date back far further, as Atherstone, a neighbouring village, dates back to the Romans.


Restaurants -  For a smaller village it is surprisingly well provided for by restaurants.

Schools - Pupils tend to start learning in Sheepy but then move further afield when they advance to secondary education.
