Rutland is the smallest historic county in England and the fourth smallest in the UK as a whole. Its greatest length north to south is only 18 miles and its greatest breadth east to west is 17 miles. The only towns in Rutland are Oakham, the county town, and Uppingham. At the centre of the county is the large artificial reservoir, Rutland Water, which is an important nature reserve serving as an overwintering site for wildfowl and a breeding site for ospreys.
