The weekly Rutland Echo and Leicestershire Advertiser has had many names during its run. See below for a full list of its titles. Included in its coverage of the county of Rutland are the county town of Oakham and the town of Uppingham. The paper also covered parts of the neighbouring county of Leicestershire, including the town of Melton Mowbray.

If you are interested in the local news from Rutland and surrounding areas, this paper will be a useful resource. For instance, if your passion is football, you can discover stories related to the sport and those who played it, such as Stanely Ernest Gibbs, aged 19, who died from a fatal football accident.

The county of Rutland is landlocked and located in the East Midlands of England. Of the historic counties in England, Rutland is the smallest. Fittingly, the county’s motto – Multum in Parvo – means ‘much in little’. Today, the county consists of just two towns: Oakham and Uppingham.
