Goadby is a small rural village in some of the most beautiful countryside of Leicestershire. The village has easy access to Leicester via the nearby A 47. The village itself, being so small, has very limited facilities so travel to Kibworth or Billesdon is necessary is necessary.
The village is thought to have been founded by the Danes, and the 'by' in the name is indicative of Danish (or Viking) origin. In the Doomsday book the village was reported as having 7 villagers and being a mainly arable farming village with nearby woods providing good hunting grounds. The village church was founded in the late 12th century and has recently been extensively renovated.
