Pilton is a small village and civil parish in the county of Rutland in the East Midlands of England. The population of the village was 39 at the 2001 census. This remained less than 100 and was included in the civil parish of Lyndon.

It is a mile or two south of Rutland Water, and near North Luffenham, Wing and Lyndon. To the east of the village is the site of the former Pilton Brick & Tile Works which was part of the Normanton estate, owned by the Earls of Ancaster.

The small parish church, dedicated to St Nicholas, is a Grade II* listed building.[3]
