Our Churches

Although Rutland is the smallest county in the country it still has over sixty Christian places of worship many of which are notable for various reasons, some historic some by association.

Simon Jenkins in his book England’s Thousand Best Churches’ highlights thirteen churches within the county, i.e. about twenty percent of the total which, in itself, speaks volumes! In fact, he says that (Rutland) has more good churches per square mile than any other (county). Also, Brian Harris in his book Harris’s Guide to Churches & Cathedrals draws attention to five of Rutland’s churches.
