Brooke is a little village in Rutland, 2 miles from Oakham.

St. Peter`s Church has a 13th century tower and Norman work, and was rebuilt in the 16th century.

The church was used in the filming of "Pride and Prejudice", starring Keira Knightley and Judi Dench.

Brooke Priory was the only monastic house in Rutland, and was founded in the 12th century. It was demolished at the Dissolution of the Monasteries, and on the site is now a 17th century house called The Priory. There are considerable earthworks connected with the fishponds.
