Oakham and Barndsale gardens
A great day out from Nottingham is a trip to Rutland via
The old town of Oakham is worth a brief visit to see the Butter Cross
with its 5 hole stocks which is at least 400 years old. The town pump is
in front of the castle gates in a central position in the town.
Barnsdale is also close by for garden enthusiasts.
The Butterfly farm & Aquatic centre is on the north shore off theA606. There are 5000 square feet of walk through jungle.
