Rocks by Rail: The Living Ironstone Museum

Rocks by Rail – formerly know as Rutland Railway Musuem, is situated 4 miles from Oakham and tells the local story of how private  railways were used in the local ironstone extraction industry to move the extracted stone on the first part of its journey to the distant steelworks. It takes visitors back to the days before mass road transport when most minerals were was carried by rail and quarries had their own rail system.
