There is a distinct identity within the gentle rolls of Rutland fields, where woodland creases belie the true lack of expanse.
Then, there in the centre, lies more than 4 square miles of watery fun. Created in the 1970’s, Rutland Water has the look of a water far older. The trout grow big, and so do the pike, zander and perch. The best anglers here though are the ospreys – reintroduced in the late nineties and now thriving. It’s quite a place.
