Rockingham Castle

This remarkable castle, built on the instruction of William the Conqueror, has been my family home for 450 years. Prior to the Watons ownership the Castle was held by the crown. There are very few other homes that have been continuously occupied for nearly 1000 years and within that time been owned by just one family since being relinquished as a royal Castle. I think this is a particularly extraordinary aspect of Rockinghams long and fascinating story. The Castle is now home to my wife, Elizabeth and our children, all of whom enjoy the Castle as I did as a child. Visit Website

British Birdfair

The British Birdwatching Fair has come a long way from its humble beginnings in 1989. The idea evolved from a local event held in 1987 at Rutland Water Nature Reserve called The Wildfowl Bonanza. The event was a great success and after much deliberation, in the local pub appropriately named The Finchs Arms, the idea of a birdwatchers fair was hatched by the organisers Tim Appleton and Martin Davies. The Fair takes place on the nature reserve at Rutland Water which itself is a huge water storage reservoir owned by Anglian Water. The nature reserve is a RAMSAR and Special Protection Area and is managed by The Leicestershire and Rutland Wildlife Trust. Visit Website
