Leicestershire is my home county and because I see it so often I can become blind to it. Like the parson's egg it is good in parts. However because it is also part of the industrial midlands and liberally spattered with the detritus of mankind - including motorways, huge warehouse sheds, electricity transmission towers etc. - I am often heard to say "I hate Leicestershire." In truth it is no worse than anywhere else and for the most part better than many; It is just that I can become blinded to it due to the overdevelopment.
