Bottesford is a village and civil parish within the Melton district of Leicestershire, England.
Bottesford lies about 20 miles east of Nottingham and 16 miles north of Melton Mowbray. The village is the largest in the Vale of Belvoir and is near to Belvoir Castle, home to the Duke and Duchess of Rutland. Botteford has a population of around 3,000. It borders parishes in Lincolnshire and Nottinghamshire, nearby places being Sedgebrook (in Lincs), Elton (in Notts), and Redmile (in Leics). There is a post office, a railway station and a library in Bottesford.
Bottesford was built around the river Devon and was named because of the ford at the centre of the village. The village has a large medieval church, St. Mary’s, which has the highest spire in Leicestershire (at 212 feet) and is the burial place of the Dukes of Rutland. One of the Rutland tombs is famous for its inscription, which attributes a death to witchcraft by the Witches of Belvoir. Most of the church is 15th century but the chancel was rebuilt in the 17th century to accommodate the Rutland monuments. The monuments completely fill the chancel and offer a fascinating view of changing aristocratic taste in the 16th and 17th centuries.
Bottesford has a local website that covers many sides of Bottesford’s local history including mounting evidence of occupation in Roman times and earlier. Bottesford was the venue of one of the country’s early friendly societies, thought to have been founded in the 1750s. It provided members with sickness and funeral benefits for over 200 years. Eleven contributors from the history group produced in 2009 a book on the local history since 1850.
During World War 2, from December 1941, there was an RAF Bomber Command airfield located to the north of the town, near Long Bennington called RAF Bottesford. Initially it belonged to No 3 Group, then after being used by USAAF’s IX Troop Carrier Command for D-Day, was used by No. 5 Group from late 1944. It is no longer in use as an airfield, but the runways can still be seen.
Entertainers Laurel and Hardy stayed for Christmas 1952 at the Bull Inn, where the landlady was Stan Laurel’s sister Olga. They were appearing at the Empire Theatre in Nottingham. There is a plaque to this effect on the building.
There were two brickyards at Beckinthorpe in the 19th century, one of them also producing the unique Bottesford Blue pantiles still to be seen on some local buildings. Local employment declined in the 20th century. The four pubs, six restaurants, at least 16 retailers, and 20 odd small producers and service providers today are one-person or family concerns, whereas the building firm of William Roberts Ltd, founded by Joseph William Roberts (1898-2010) in Sutton-cum-Granby and moved to Bottesford in 1937, employed over 500 people at one time.

"Thankyou so much for the care and speed that you gave me for scrapping my car. I'd had her a long time and was sad to see her go, but the guy who removed the car was so professional about it, it was easier than I thought. I would definitely recommend you to anybody in the future." Les & Jackie Eales
