From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Gartree was a hundred of Leicestershire.

It was in the south-east of the county, roughly corresponding to today's Harborough district. The town of Market Harborough was its largest settlement. It gives its name to HMP Gartree, and also to the Gartree electoral division of Leicestershire.

The original meeting place of the hundred was the Gartree Bush, lying south west of Gaulby. In 1750, this was moved to the Bull's Head at Tur Langton.[1]
