About the location

MORCOTT

Corby 10 miles; Peterborough 20 miles

Morcott is a village in the county of Rutland in the East Midlands of England. The village's Norman church features a “pancake” window on the west side, and a north arcade considered to be 'the best example of Norman work in the area'. The village name is an Old English derivation of “a cottage on the moor”. The village is recorded as Morcote in the Domesday survey of 1086 and formed part of the king’s manor of Barrowden. The village served the manorial interests of several different ownerships but passed to the Fydell Rowley family in the early 19th Century. The Church of St Mary is the defining landmark in the village and is regarded as the most complete Norman church in Rutland. Rutland County Council designated Morcott a Conservation Area in 1981,one of 34 conservation areas in Rutland which are “of special architectural or historic interest, the character or appearance of which it is desirable to preserve or enhance”.
