The road into Lyddington from the south
|Rutland and Melton|
Lyddington is a village and parish in southern Rutland adjacent to the border with Northamptonshire. The population of the civil parish was 397 at the 2001 census, falling to 366 at the 2011 census.
Lyddington Bede House, owned by English Heritage, is a Grade-I-listed building incorporating parts of a mediæval bishop's palace. In 1547 it was seized on behalf of the king from the Bishops of Lincoln and later passed to Lord Burghley. In 1600 part of the palace was converted into an almshouse and it continued in this use until 1930. The remains of the fishponds of the bishop's palace are nearby.
The parish church of St Andrew is also a Grade-I-listed building.
There are two public houses, The Marquess of Exeter and The Old White Hart.
