The county of Leicestershire is in the Midlands and is very much in the centre of the country. The county is named after its county town, Leicester, which is the only city in the region and is where around half of the county’s population resides. Other towns include Loughborough, Coalville and Melton Mowbray. Leicestershire is relatively hilly, and the north-west of the county comprises part of the area designated as the National Forest; a 1990s environmental initiative to join together various ancient woodlands.
Leicestershire was stated in the 1086 Doomsday Book, and its external boundaries have remained mainly unchanged since that time. The county is believed to be the founding county of fox hunting, and this reflected by many of the various icons and logos of the region, such as the Leicester City Football Club emblem, including a fox. Perhaps the most famous single piece of history is the fate of King Richard III, who died at the Battle of Bosworth in Leicestershire in 1485, and whose remains were found under a car park in 2012; following their removal, he is now interred at Leicester Cathedral.
Leicestershire enjoys a rather varied economy. The county has a strong engineering heritage, and this is being continued through partnerships with the Loughborough and De Montfort Universities, which are nurturing the future engineering talent to work upon graduation for some of the cutting-edge companies in the region. Aside from engineering, agriculture remains important, and similarly to this the county produces a range of its own food varieties. These include Melton Mowbray pork pies, and Red Leicester cheese. Some large companies have plants, storage warehouses and offices within Leicestershire; examples of such companies include the fashion retailer Next, homeware company Dunelm Group, and construction company Barratt Developments.
The property market in Leicestershire is viewed by many to be good value. The average house in the county costs £242,257, which is broadly in line with the national average. In the main city of Leicester, many attractive historical buildings are being repurposed into attractive, unique accommodation; there is rarely any removal of character features, and instead they are integrated into the new designs. Generally, movers tend to find large homes for their money in Leicestershire, and this in combined with good schools and an extensive array of activities means that the county is a popular place for people to buy homes.
Leicestershire has an estimated population that slightly exceeds a million at 1,043,800, making it the twenty-first most populous county in England. It is broadly as diverse as the national average; 85% of the population are white, and this figure is lower in Leicester, where 23% of the population are non-native to the United Kingdom.
Leicestershire exhibits a range of different cultural features. It is a keen sporting region; Loughborough University is known for its sports facilities and aptitude, while the county’s largest football team, Leicester City F.C., made history by winning the English Premier League title in the 2015-16 season. It also is the home of the Download rock festival, which is held in Donnington Park. The diverse population also means that a range of cuisine and arts are present in the area, particularly in Leicester.
