Breedon on the Hill

Breedon on the Hill (population 863, 1991) is a village in Leicestershire, England.

The village is most noticable for the dramatically positioned church. This is on top of the hill which has been cut back to a cliff-face by the active limestone quarry beneath it.

There is also an ancient lock-up, a small local gaol for minor offenders.
