North West Leicestershire

'''North West Leicestershire''' is a local government district (Non-metropolitan district) in Leicestershire, England. Its main towns are Ashby-de-la-Zouch and Coalville.

The district contains East Midlands Airport, which operates flights to the rest of Britain and to various places in Europe. It is also notable as the location of Castle Donington and Donington Park, a grand-prix circuit and a major venue for music festivals.

The district is represented in the UK Parliament by the constituency of the same name (North West Leicestershire (UK Parliament constituency)).

The area has a long history of mineral extraction, with coal, brick clay, gravel and granite amongst the products. All the deep coal mines in the area have closed, but opencast mining still continues.

The district was formed in 1974 by a merger of Ashby de la Zouch Urban District, Ashby Woulds Urban District, Coalville Urban District, Ashby de la Zouch Rural District, Castle Donington Rural District and Ibstock from the Market Bosworth Rural District.
