For many years the village, north of the junction of the A50 and the M1, was known for its small youth hostel, which is now closed.
Copt Oak is the highest point of the M1, and the site of BBC Radio Leicester's only transmitter on 104.9 MHz FM (V.H.F.), and also the main transmitter of Gem 106 (former Heart 106 before January 2011) on 106.0FM.
