Rutland’s worst kept secret has made the national news. Uppingham in Rutland is the best place to live in the Midlands according to a study published in The Times newspaper this month.
Described as a feast for the eyes at every turn, the article states that the market town is a place that cares about appearances and that life here is pleasingly traditional. The Uppingham Fatstock Show in November gets a mention as does the April Stilton Cheese Classic Vehicle Run. (See www.stiltoncheeserun.uk). In 2020 Uppingham was voted in a national survey as the best place to live in the UK. It currently has around 2000 dwellings and a population of just under 5000.
The news of Uppingham’s further recognition also comes as no surprise to the organisers of the annual Uppingham In Bloom competition who regularly win awards for their achievements. The town can also boast hosting an East Midlands Outstanding Neighbourhood Award winner, The Beeches, with its elegant executive homes and 1Gb Gigaclear fibre to the premise broadband network connected to every dwelling.
Uppingham market place with its award winning Falcon Hotel can be viewed on the Uppingham Webcam between 9am and 6pm at www.uppinghamfirst.co.uk
