Parish of Pilton

 

THE PARISH OF PILTON

Pilton has a population of 62, and is in effect a small hamlet with scattered farmsteads. There are three families with young children; otherwise the population consists mainly of middle-aged and retired people. Many of those in employment commute to work, though there are four farms in the parish. There is no shop, public house or village hall, but use is made of the village hall in nearby Wadenhoe.

 

Most of the houses are grouped around the fine parish church, dedicated to St Mary and All Saints. This dates mainly from the fifteenth century, and is in a good state of repair. There is a monthly Eucharist and on the fifth Sunday in the month a service for the whole benefice.
