Author: Trevor Hickman

The market town of Uppingham lies in the county of Rutland. With a population a little shy of 4,000 people today, the town has a rich and fascinating history. Uppingham is blessed with a range of speciality shops and traditional retailers, many of which are still family owned. The Eyebrook Reservoir near Uppingham was used by Lancaster Bombers flying from RAF Scampton as the final practice run for Guy Gibson's famous Dambusters and Barnes Wallis' bouncing bomb.

Uppingham & the Villages Through Time also covers the villages of Belton, Edith Weston, Ketton, North Luffenham, South Luffenham and Barrowden, to name but a few. This fascinating selection of old and new photographs and informative captions compiled by well-known local historian Trevor Hickman will be essential reading for anyone who knows and loves Uppingham, the surrounding villages and the area in general.
