Catthorpe

Trip Planner Europe  /  UK  /  England  /  Leicestershire  /  Catthorpe
Catthorpe is a village and civil parish in the Harborough district of Leicestershire, England. It is located beside the River Avon and close to the A5 road, and hence close to the tripoint formed by Leicestershire, Northamptonshire and Warwickshire; the nearest town is Rugby, around 4miles to the southwest. According to the 2001 Census, the parish had a population of 179, falling slightly to 173 at the 2011 census.Catthorpe gives its name to the nearby Catthorpe Interchange road junction formed by the M1 and M6 motorways and the A14 road, which is known to be regularly congested owing to its non-standard design. The A14 passes under both motorways; these underpasses were built in the 1960s for the former A427, which passed through Catthorpe. In 2009, the Highways Agency announced their preferred design for the upgrade of the junction after a public consultation in 2008.Catthorpe briefly came to national attention in 1999 when the Latvian alleged war criminal Konrāds Kalējs was revealed to be living at Catthorpe Manor, a nursing home near the village.
