Rutland Libraries have welcomed the donation of a new hardback book that explores the history of Lyddington Manor.

The book, ‘Buildings and People of a Rutland Manor’, takes an in-depth look at the Manor of Lyddington, which once comprised the villages of Lyddington, Caldecott, Stoke Dry, Thorpe by Water and the now-deserted medieval village of Snelston.

A grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund has allowed the Lyddington Manor History Society to produce the book, with six copies donated to Rutland Libraries for members of the public to read and enjoy.

The book contains full colour illustrations, photographs, maps and extracts relating to local people and properties.
