Broombriggs Farm and Windmill Hill

Riders on the bridleway at Broombriggs Farm
The Park was presented to Leicestershire County Council in 1970 and is a 55-hectare mixed arable and stock farm. It has a 2.4km (1.5 mile) farm trail and information boards explaining the working of the farm. The trail is interlinked with a network of waymarked footpaths and horse tracks.
Between Broombriggs Farm and the village of Woodhouse Eaves is Windmill Hill, which got its name from being the site of a 19th-century windmill. The site is opposite Beacon Hill Country Park.
