Rutland is at the very heart of England. It is England's smallest historic county, less than 20 miles in distance from north to south or east to west, and a patchwork of incredibly picturesque and peaceful villages.
At its centre is Rutland Water, by surface area the largest reservoir in the country, covering more than 3,000 acres of land, which has matured over the past thirty years into a sanctuary for wildlife and a major tourist attraction. Secret Rutland goes behind the facades of the familiar to discover the lesser-known parts of the county's long and illustrious past.
Join Daniel J. Codd on a journey through the hidden secrets of Rutland, its deserted settlements, history, folklore, antiquities and street names with interesting stories to be told.
