Normanton Church - Rutland Water

Published over 2 years ago by Ian Purden in Landscape

During a recent visit to the UK we came upon Rutland Water which provides a very 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 was originally called Saint Mathews Church until the early 1700's when a large part of the village was demolished to create an estate for the wealthy Heathcote Baronets.
