Morcott railway station on the branch line between Seaton and Luffenham closed in 1966. The road bridge which carries the High Street over the old railway cutting is a skew arch containing construction features rarely seen.
Morcott Hall was for 25 years an independent girl's school. It is now again a private house.
The village hall was previously a Baptist chapel. It has recently been refurbished and extended and is used for a broad variety of activities.
The village pub, the White Horse, has a plaque to 1982 Grand National winner, Grittar whose owner Frank Gilman lived in the parish. The pub re-opened in March 2008 after refurbishment.
