Teigh is a village and civil parish in the county of Rutland in the East Midlands of England. The population of the village was 48 in the 2001 census. At the 2011 census the population remained less than 100 and is included in the civil parish of Market Overton. It is notable for its parish church, almost unaltered since a 1782 rebuild, that features pews that face one another rather than the altar.
Anthony Jenkinson, main trader of the Muscovy Company was buried here in 1611. He had travelled as far as Bukhara when trying to reach Cathay overland from Moscow, and established overland trade routes through Russia to Persia.
