Snapshot of Bottesford commerce at the turn of the millenium.

By no means a complete listing, but it gives some idea of the diversity of trades, shops and services in Bottesford and its continuing vitality as a centre commercial activity in the NW tip of Leicestershire.

Change continues.

Jean’s Bakery is now the Malthouse Deli

Gary Nicholl’s former garage and forecourt on High Street opposite the Rutland pub is now demolished and awaits redevelopment as housing.

  • Thanks for your comment. Unfortunately we are not able to advertise contact details on this site given the terms of the support from the Heritage Lottery Fund. This page aims is to provide a snapshot of what shops and trades were available in Bottesford in the year 2000. However, the recent conversion of the upper floor of the old malt house into a hair and beauty salon is mentioned in the page on Queen Street: 150 years of shops and trades.
