Tixover is a small village and civil parish in Rutland. The population of the civil parish at the 2001 census was 174, falling to 163 at the 2011 census.[3]

The parish church, St Luke's, near the River Welland, now stands about 3/4 mile from the village.

Tixover Grange, west of the A47 road, was home to the residential school named after Wilfred Pickles from 1955[4] to the 1980s. Tixover House is now a care home, run by Barchester Healthcare.[5]
