Leicestershire’s most attractive features areshy and quiet and have to be sought out, butthey amply reward the explorer. The county is divided into two almost equal parts by theRiver Soar, which flows northward into the Trent. It separates the east and west by abroad valley, flowing like a silver ribbonthrough historic Leicester in the very heartof the county. This capital town was thriving in Roman days and is one of the oldesttowns in England. It has managed to retainoutstanding monuments of almost every ageof English history. Red Leicester cheese wasmade in the southern part of the county inthe 1700s, but now the only genuine productis made at Melton Mowbray, which alsomakes Stilton and, of course, the superlative

pork pies. And every schoolchild knows thename of Bosworth Field, one of themomentous battles that changed the courseof English history. Just 20 miles across and covering a mere150 square miles, Rutland delights in its statusas England’s smallest county. Its 37,800inhabitants were incensed when the LocalGovernment changes of 1974 stripped thecounty of its identity and merged it withneighbouring Leicestershire. It took more than20 years of ceaseless campaigning beforebureaucracy relented and Rutland was re-instated as a county in its own right. Rutlandhas villages of thatch and ironstone, clusteredaround their churches, and the countryside isrich in pasture where once deer were hunted.Its central featureis Rutland Water, whose 3,100 acresmake it one of thelargest man-madelakes in northernEurope. Started in1971 to supply  water to the EastMidlands towns, it was created by damming the valley nearEmpingham.
