Burley Park, at the top of the plan, and Normanton Park, at middle right ,are interesting examples of the 17th-century development of formal park landscape, characterised by regular hedgerows and fishponds. At the top of the map, north of Oakham, is the Oakham Canal. An entirely manmade waterway, this circuitous canal was opened in 1803, and passes by many Rutland villages on its way from Melton Wharf to Oakham.
