From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Cranoe is a small village and civil parish in the Harborough district of Leicestershire, England. The parish had a population of 35 in 2001.

Despite its small size, Cranoe was once a thriving village, with a post office (now Post Office Cottage), a pub (the Cardigan Arms, now Cardigan Cottage), and a school (now The School House on School Lane) which used to cater to three surrounding villages: Glooston, Welham and Hallaton. The village still has two farms and is surrounded by sloping green fields, populated by sheep almost all year round.
