Residents including MP Alicia Kearns react to a Daily Telegraph about Rutland
The Daily Telegraph might suggest ‘few people have ever even heard of Rutland, let alone been there’, but flourishing visitor numbers and thriving towns might tell a different story.
The report - a travel piece entitled ‘Forgotten corners of Britain you should visit in 2020’ - highlights England’s smallest county’s lack of motorways and ‘sleepy charm’, as well as its independent shops and restaurants.
It also speaks of some of Rutland’s hidden histories, such as Stoke Dry church being the place Guy Fawkes and his co-conspirators drew up plans to blow up King James.
