About Enderby

Longitude: 1 degree 12 minutes West, Latitude: 52 degrees 35 minutes North. Ordnance Survey national grid reference SK 536 994

The village centre is characterised by a number of old and very narrow roads, with more recent housing developments to the south and west. Despite retaining a ‘traditional’ village centre, Enderby has excellent road links to the rest of the country, being situated between the M69 and the M1. A disused railway line lies to the north of the village, marking the current day western edge of the Enderby area.

Residents of Enderby share a close relationship with those in the neighbouring village of Narborough and Littlethorpe. Village ‘boundaries’ have become less distinct over the years and as a result many residents from neighbouring areas consider themselves to be part of one community.

Enderby can be viewed as having three areas; The ‘Village’, the ‘more recently developed’ Enderby and the area known as ‘St Johns’, the latter being separated from the rest of Enderby by the M1 motorway.

The headquarters of Leicestershire Constabulary are located at the far end of the St Johns area, bordering Leicester and adjacent to the ‘out of town’ retail area, Fosse Park.
