Whissendine is a village and civil parish in the county of Rutland, England lying north west of the county town, Oakham.

Whissendine Windmill, built in 1809, is again producing flour. Miller Nigel Moon restored the full set of sails in September 2006 and has returned it to wind power. The large parish church towards the east of the village centre has a prominent tower. The screen to the Lady Chapel was brought here in the 19th century from the old chapel of St John's College, Cambridge. Whissendine Church of England Primary School is situated in the middle of the village and has a reputation which draws pupils from outside its catchment area. The Village Hall is a centre for the community, hosting many events throughout the year including antiques fayres and the village pantomime. Each year in late June, the village hosts a "feast week", an ancient custom from the Middle Ages that has been reintroduced and entails a week of activities for the community. This includes a 6-mile run, an AA approved race, the Feast week extravaganza, the knockout and the fete on the green. The village also has a Sports Club which plays host to a cricket team, football pitch, tennis club, archery club and a bowling green. The pasture called The Banks is still let by an ancient custom. This involves a candle in which a pin is stuck is lit and the last bidder before the pin falls is entitled to rent The Banks for the ensuing year. The village has a thriving scout and cub pack drawing children across the county to participate. It meets every Tuesday in the School Hall. The village sits on the Rutland Round, the circular walk around Britain's smallest county.
