Welcome to the website for Exton village and Exton and Horn Parish Council.

In March 2015 it was agreed that the parishes of Exton and Horn would be merged and served by one parish council. Horn did not have a parish council prior to this as most of the original village has long since disappeared, though the parish contains a few houses mainly around Horn Mill.

Exton is one of the most beautiful villages in Rutland with an ancient village green at its heart. Around it stand the eighteenth century Fox and Hounds pub and a number of lovely old cottages.

On this site you will find information about Exton and Horn Parish Council together with pages on the history of the village, the Parish Church and other useful information about the village and the surrounding area.

If you have an item of news or photos to put on the site please email Paul Taylor
