Local Businesses

Rutland has an enviable number of fantastic local businesses who share a sense of community spirit and passion for the county.

One of these is Hanson UK, a leading supplier of building materials and  cement products, with one of their sites being Ketton quarry in Rutland.
The company’s vision is to support their local communities, and this includes supporting the production of the Discover Rutland Autumn Winter Visitor Guide 2020, as a way to support the local economy. So a big THANK YOU goes to Hanson UK 🙂
