Derbyshire, Leicestershire & Rutland Air Ambulance (DLRAA) attended the scene to help the 54-year-old woman at around 10.30am.
A spokesperson for the service said: “On assessment, the patient had suffered a suspected broken leg.
“She was given much-needed pain relief and her leg was placed in a traction splint.
“She was then immobilised before being airlifted to University Hospitals Coventry & Warwickshire.”
DLRAA works alongside its sister service, the Warwickshire & Northamptonshire Air Ambulance (WNAA), in providing advanced emergency care.
