Description:
Bisbrooke is a village and civil parish in the county of Rutland in the East Midlands of England. It is located about two miles (3.2 km) east of Uppingham close to the A47. In 2001, it had a population of 219.

The parish church of St John the Baptist dates from 1871 in its present form, though the tower was only finished in 1914. There are a number of fine gravestones, which pre-date the present building.

The Gate Inn is on Main Street. Bisbrooke Hall is to the north of the A47 within the parish boundary but actually nearer to the village of Glaston. The Hall was substantially remodelled and extended by Lord Carbery around 1840.

In the 1950s, "small-holdings, orchards and vegetable patches jostle each other in the sheltered hollows of Bisbrooke” where “almost everyone grows and sells strawberries”; much of the fruit was sent for jam-making.

The village was too unremarkable to warrant an entry in Arthur Mee's The King's England volume.
