Stunning Normanton Church, stands very regal in Rutland Water. One can see this if you visit the Nature Reserve, also worth a visit. Nice for a picnic.

Lucky to be there on a warm and sunny day. Watch the yachts gliding peacefully on the reservoir. It can be a very peaceful place

I took a late afternoon stroll with my dog from Normanton Park Hotel toward the half sunken church. The views across Rutland Water were stunning. Not sure if the church is licenced for weddings but it would certainly make for a romantic venue

Lovely location, shame it wasn’t open when we went. Maybe opening times could be more visible to the public. It’s an amazing historic monument that has been kept amazingly well!

Hed a look at the church whilst walking around Rutland Water. Nice building but can only see from outside. Good venue for wedding. Not much to do there otherwise only enjoy the views.

Don't expect too much unless it's a function you're involved in. Worth stopping by if passing by. Summertime facilities evident but quite raw on a rainy January morning.

This is a lovely little church on Rutland water. It was about a 10 minute walk from the car park. If you look closely you can see evidence of how the church was raised when the area was flooded to make the Water. We were...More
