The Heritage of Rutland Water. Rutland Local History & Record Society. When the Gwash Valley was flooded in the mid-1970s, Rutland Water became England’s largest man-made lake set in the country’s smallest county. An area of water created as a reservoir and initially strongly opposed has become a major tourist attraction internationally recognized for its wildlife.

This community project will investigate, document and publicize the changing heritage of this area. This will be the first time that such a detailed and comprehensive survey has been attempted and may be the last opportunity before memories disappear. Project Contact Mr Robert Ovens. Address c/o Rutland County Museum. Catmose Street. OAKHAM. Rutland. LE15 6HW. Finishing Date 31 May 07. The Group received a Heritage Lottery Fund grant of £24591.
