Stanford Lane, Cotes

Cotes is a hamlet and very small civil parish near the town of Loughborough in Leicestershire, England, with a population of about 50.

It lies on the River Soar, and Cotes Bridge provides the main bridging point in that area. The A60 Trunk Road goes over Cotes Bridge on its way out of Loughborough towards Nottingham. The B676, the only other significant nearby road, begins at the A60 just to the east of Cotes Bridge and goes off towards the village of Burton on the Wolds.

The medieval village of Cotes was abandoned, possibly because of plague, although a hall remained at Cotes for some time.

There was a minor battle at Cotes Bridge during the English Civil War.
