Braunton-in-Rutland is a picturesque English village with over 1000 years of history. Mentioned in the Domesday Book, the village originated as a berewick (satellite village) of the manor of Hambleton. The modern church is an extension of a 12th century chapel and is home to "Sheela na Gig" a pagan goddess stone carving, found in the 1920's.
