History, tourist information, and nearby accommodation
There is an RAF chapel in the church as well, a testament to the close links between the village and the nearby airbase over the past several decades.
Just outside Cottesmore is the Rutland Railway Museum, which tells the story of the railway's role in industry, especially relating to quarrying ironstone in the Rutland area. There is an open-air steam centre at the museum, with a large collection of steam-driven locomotives.
