Limited roadside parking is available, but please be mindful of residents.
No bus services stop in Brooke, with the closest stop being a 40-minute walk from the church, on Spey Drive in Oakham. However, Oakham is serviced by many bus routes. The information can be found here.

Three miles south-west of Oakham is the small village of Brooke, which is at the head of the River Gwash. St Peter's church dates to the 12th century, and, interestingly, appeared on film in the 2005 film adaption of Pride & Prejudice. The quaint churchyard is small with largely open grassy space, but features a variety of tree and plant species.
The churchyard supports the Pink Waxcap, which like most waxcaps are generally only found in old grassland.
