Teigh, Leicestershire

Teigh is a village and civil parish in the county of Rutland in the East Midlands of England. It is notable for its parish church, almost unaltered since a 1782 rebuild, that features pews that face one another rather than the altar. The writer Arthur Mee proposed Teigh as one of the few Thankful Villages which lost no men in World War I. Richard Folville, a member of the gang of robbers led by his older brother Eustace was rector here from 1321.
