Welcome to Exton and Horn Parish Council website.Exton is one of the most beautiful villages in Rutland with an English village green standing at its heart. Around The Green is a scattering of traditional stone cottages many of them over 300 years old and the Fox and Hounds public house. Horn village no longer exists apart from a few houses around Horn Mill and in 2015 it was agreed that the parishes of Exton and Horn would be merged and served by one parish council.

Waste collections

Waste collections

A reminder to the community that the bin collections are continuing and the operators are endeavouring to respect the distancing requirements. However, we should remember they are doing a great job for us all avoiding an accumulation of waste while more people are at home all day. It is important that households do not use this current emergency situationto overfill their bins with household items or garden hedge cuttings etc. Side waste will not be collected.
