Empingham is a small village that lies just beyond the north east corner of Rutland Water, and the church itself is rather large in comparison. Much of the church dates to the 13th century, with some 15th century features and beyond. The churchyard is mostly open, with a few mature trees at the rear.
The mature trees include specimens of Atlas Cedar, Norway Maple and the ubiquitous churchyard Yew. The grassland includes Fox and Cubs.
