    Description

    Exton church is located on the west of the small village of Exton, which is north of Rutland Water and close to both Oakham and Stamford. The quaint church sits at the end of a quiet drive and lies in the beautiful grounds of Exton Park. The churchyard is an entirely open, grassy space. The church dates to the 13th century, and has an impressive array of monuments and sculptures from the 16th to the 18th century for those interested. Notably, in 1843 a lightning strike toppled the spire, but it has been rebuilt in the original stone.
