Where is Rutland?
Rutland is a small county in the East Midlands of England. It sits between Leicestershire, Lincolnshire and Northamptonshire. It is about 18 miles north to south and around 17 miles east to west.
Its Latin motto is "Multum in Parvo" which translates as "Much in little".
It has only two towns - Oakham (the county town) and Uppingham but there are many small villages.
There are no motorways, permanent cinemas or fixed speed cameras in Rutland.
Rutland Water (a large man-made reservoir) lies about a mile east of Oakham. It is one of the largest man-made reservoirs in Europe and was created in the 1970s by damming, then flooding, the Gwash Valley near the village of Empingham.
