Due to the vagaries of place-name etymology, Breedon-on-the Hill actually translates as "Hill hill on the hill".
The village is best known for the fascinating St. Mary and St. Hardulph Church, with its amazing collection of Anglo-Saxon carvings and friezes dating from the early 9th century.
The church is perched precariously on the top of a hill which is being gradually quarried away, and on the site of an Iron Age hill fort.
In the village itself, down at ground level, is an unusual beehive-style village lock-up.
Blue Badge Guide Colin Crosby is available to lead Guided Walks around Breedon-on-the-Hill for groups.
