Wing is a small village lying to the south of Rutland Water, approximately equidistant from Oakham and Uppingham (see map). It is home to some 300 people, some of whom live in 17th century houses built from ironstone quarried in nearby Barnack or Clipsham and roofed with slates from Collyweston.
Wing turf maze is one of only eight known to exist in England. Mediaeval Monks may have crawled along the lines, stopping at points to pray and repent.
