Author: Trevor Hickman

Oakham, the county town of Rutland, has a fascinating history. Oakham Castle's Norman hall was built by Walkin de Ferrers around 1190, and also houses the famous horseshoes, which were collected from members of royalty and peers of the realm who passed through the town. The impressive tower of All Saints church dominates the skyline from miles around. Rutland County Museum on Catmose Street was constructed in 1794 to be the home of Rutland Fencible Cavalry. Walking around the lanes and minor roads that crisscross Rutland today is still a trip back in time. This unique selection of old and new images, compiled by local historian Trevor Hickman, is essential reading for anybody who knows and loves Oakham and the surrounding villages. Featured alongside Oakham are Cottesmere, Langham, Empingham, Whissendine and many more.
