Anstey is a large village in Leicestershire, England, located to the north-west of Leicester, within the Charnwood district. Its population was 6,528 at the 2011 census. This is expected to rise with a new housing estate being built on Groby Road.

The village is separated from Leicester by the Rothley Brook, Castle Hill Park and A46, and is bordered by the villages of Glenfield, Groby, Newtown Linford, Cropston and Thurcaston, and the outskirts of Beaumont Leys and Anstey Heights. To the north-west lies Bradgate Park.

Anstey is known as the gateway to Charnwood Forest. It is a mixture of traditional English villages (with two village greens, a high green and a low green) and industrial towns (with a few nineteenth-century cotton mills, many now converted to flats) that is made up mostly of a series of small, council-owned and private properties that are laced together, often without a defined boundary. Anstey dates from the Anglese origins, when it was known as Hanstige (later Anstige), meaning a narrow woodland path (specifically, the sense being one-way or a steep path. Anstey lies between Charnwood Forest and Leicester Forest.

While developing the site for the new Co-op Shop, in 2002, archaeologists were called and found remains dating from the 12th Century. A plaque stating so was placed on the wall of the new shop.

The name Anstey was first recorded in the Domesday book, holdings from Hugh de Grandmesnil, a Castellan in Leicester, who was one of the largest landowners in the county. At that time, it was a small farming community. Anstey appears to have had its origins in two different foci of settlement, each associated with a distinct manor, one associated with Leicester Abbey, the other with Ferrers of Groby.

Anstey is thought to have had a substantial military force at one time: William Porter, “fitting out the men XIX, and archers XIX” in 1431. When Bonnie Prince Charlies army moved south in the 1745 Rebellion, a foraging force reached Anstey Common, though the main force was turned back at Derby.

Local industries included the manufacture of woollens from the 18th century through to the 19th, leading to the population increasing to about 600 by 1800. By 1845, 300 people were employed as frame weavers in the village. A drop-off in industry mid-nineteenth century saw a drop-off in village population, though the hosiery trade continued to operate in the village well into the middle of the twentieth century.

Boot and shoe manufacturing became a larger part of village employment between 1860 and 1900, with the first employer in Leicestershire described as “boot-and-shoe maker” appearing at Anstey in 1863. The population of the village had grown to more than 2,500 by 1900, and housing development had increased accordingly. Anstey became a separate ward in 1866, having previously been a ward of Thurcaston.

A number of associated industries developed in the parish, including tanning and making boxes, with the latter still occurring in the village. One of the largest companies in the village was the Anstey Wallpaper Company, occupying the site just east of Cropston Road, which is now filled by houses and the new Co-operative Store. Nearly all the local factories are now demolished or converted to flats. By 1971, the village had grown to a population of almost 6000. The village is still home to Ulverscroft Large Print Books Ltd, known for its large-print editions of popular books, published since 1964.
