The Heart of England/Peak District
Small is beautiful, and certainly England's smallest county lives up to this maxim. Rutland County measures just sixteen miles square in area, where the countryside has little changed since medieval times, apart from the vast expanse of water, Rutland Water - the largest man-made lake in western Europe.
Rutland was first recognised as an official Shire County in the 12th Century, although it's history goes back much further. Many of the town and village names date back to the aerly Anglo Saxon period around the b7th Century.
Where the name Rutland came from, no one is certain. Some claim it refers to the rich red colour of the soil, but it is more likely that Rutland was Rota Land, a ruler who owned a large estate in the area soon after the Roman period.
Rutland is a litle piece of old England, hidden away at the heart of the country. It's a place where Kings once hunted deer in the valleys, where tiny villages were bequeathed to Mercian Queens and where charming thatched cottages, ancient churches and fine Georgian architecture are all reminiscent of a bygone age.
Historic buildings in Rutland include the Great Hall of Oakham's Norman Castle, which is filled with horshoes from visiting aristocracy over the centuries. The famous Bede House at Lyddington was built as a palace for the Bishop's of Lincoln in the 15th Century and remains an important historic site at the heart of this pretty village.
The 1970's was a most turbulent time in Rutland's modern history. Not only did the county endure a dramatic change of landscape, but against it's will it was also merged with Leicestershire, despite much opposition from the local inhabitants.. However, Rutlander's independent spirit prevailed, and in 1997 Rutland regained it's status as a separate English County and today remains one of the most charming rural areas in Britain.
