Sapcote is a small village in the south west of Leicestershire, England, with a population of approximately 2,700. The well-known inland scuba diving site Stoney Cove is nearby. It was mentioned in the Domesday Book as Scepecote. Its name came from the Anglo-Saxon Scēapcot = “shed or enclosure for sheep” – a bit like Shepshed. An early Bronze Age occupation site has been discovered here, and a Roman villa and bath house dating from the 1st century AD.
