Egleton is a small village in the county of Rutland in the East Midlands of England. It is situated south east of Oakham, and is close to the western shore of Rutland Water. The population of the village remained less than 100 at the 2011 census and was included in the civil parish of Burley

Anglian Water Birdwatching Centre

The parish church is dedicated to St Edmund and has a notable Norman tympanum.

Shallow lagoons of the reservoir come close to the village on the south and east and more are planned as a result of increased take of supplies from Rutland Water. An area of ancient meadows, rich in orchids, lie to the east. The Anglian Water Birdwatching Centre is here and the British Birdwatching Fair is held in the parish.
