This heathland course was designed by that famous man of Fife, golfer and architect, James Braid. The club was founded some years before Braid substantially re-modelled the course and many of our winter greens are those of the original 19th century venue. Whatever time of year you play Charnwood you will discover a truly mature and well-kept course. The 18 tees of this little gem of a 9-holer offer variety of yardage, shape, and elevation thus requiring the golfer to pay close attention during both circuits. Being heathland the course is well-drained and remains open when many other courses in the county are forced to close.

Opened in 1931, Donington Park is one of Britain's most popular racing circuits. It is the home of the British Motorcycle Grand Prix (MotoGP) and also plays host to rounds of the British Touring Car Championship, British Formula 3 Championship, British GT Championship, Le Mans Series, and British Superbike Championship. The circuit uses tracks and paths in the parkland at the front of Donington Hall. Initially, it was used only for motorcycle racing. It wasn't long, however, before Fred Craner, a local garage owner and secretary of the Derby and District Motor Club, had persuaded the Sheilds family, who owned Donington Hall, to also allow car racing. To make this possible, the circuit was resurfaced and extended by 1933.

Less than two years have passed since Leicester City Council purchased an old school building with the aim of creating a centre that would tell the story of the remarkable search for –and at that point unconfirmed discovery of –King Richard lll.
The incredible transformation of the former Alderman Newton’s School, located right next to the spot where the king’s remains were found, is now complete and the King Richard lll Visitor Centre opened its doors to the public on 26 July.
The former school –a stunning Victorian Gothic revival building built partly on the site of the former Grey Friars Church and in the heart of Leicester’s Old Town –had stood empty since 2008 when its last occupants, Leicester Grammar School, moved out.
The importance of its position –overlooking the possible gravesite of the long-lost Last Plantagenet King of England –was immediately obvious, and Leicester City Council bought the freehold for the building for in November 2012.
Major renovations have now completely transformed the 150-year-old building into the home of a state-of-the art visitor centre, whilst retaining the character and features of the former school.
Using great storytelling, beautiful design and 21st century technology, the centre tells the fascinating and moving story of the king’s life and death, and reveals one of the greatest archaeological detective stories ever told.
