Uppingham – A Market Town
Uppingham is a market town in the county of Rutland in the East Midlands of England, about 6 miles (10 km) south of the county town, Oakham.
The weekly market is held on Fridays. The Market Place is transformed once a year in November into the only fatstock show still to be held in temporary penning in a traditional market town. The first recorded show was in 1889. In 2011, 140 sheep, 24 pigs and 20 cattle were entered. The event attracts farmers from all over the area who exhibit their prize livestock and toast their acquaintances afterwards in The Falcon Hotel.
Local attractions include; Barnsdale Gardens, Rockingham Castle, Rutland Water, Fineshade Woods, Eyebrook reservoir and Burghley house.
