The Bede House

The only English Heritage property in Rutland, Lyddington Bede House began life as a wing of the medieval palace owned by the Bishops of Lincoln. By 1600 it had passed to Sir Thomas Cecil, son of Queen Elizabeth’s chief minister, who converted it into an almshouse for 12 poor ‘bedesmen’ over 30 years old and two women (over 45), all free of lunacy, leprosy or the French pox.

Normanton Church

Rutland Water provides a scenic setting for the fairy-tale splendour of Normanton Church, a structure that appears to float on the lake when the reservoir is full. Normanton Church is the county of Rutland’s most famous landmark.

Wing Maze

The small village of Wing houses one of Rutland’s most unusual historic sites: a turf labyrinth known locally as ‘the Old Maze’. Its precise origins are unknown, leading to speculation that it may have prehistoric or Viking Age origins.

Exton Church

The main points of Exton Church are the remarkable monuments inside including Grinling Gibbon’s amazing monument to the Third Viscount Campden. According to Pevsner: “There are few churches in England in which English sculpture from the 16th century to the 18th century can be enjoyed so much.”
