St Wistan's church

Wistow is a hamlet and deserted medieval village in the English county of Leicestershire located to the south of the city of Leicester.

The Elizabethan Hall and the 13th-century parish church dedicated to Saint Wigstan remain. The name derives from Wistan's Stowe. Nowadays Wistow is notable as the location of a rural crafts and garden centre and of a maize maze.

Administratively, Wistow forms part of the civil parish of Wistow and Newton Harcourt and of Harborough district, although the adjoining country park is in Blaby.
