Steam on Rutland Water

 The annual Rutland Water Steam Fair is primarily a large land based steam celebration, with the usual traction engines, locomotives and fairground attractions.  Steam launches are invited to attend to provide some real steam on the water.


Its location is between Stamford and Oakham in the County of Rutland.

Steam launches are  invited to attend the Rutland Water Steam Fair, organised by the Water owners, Anglian Water.


Rutland Water is a large man-made reservoir, with an area of nearly 5 sq miles and is the second largest lake in England by area.  It has an irregular U-shape with lots of attractive bays and inlets to explore. It is primarily a sailing area, motor boats are normally prohibited and even the outboard motors for the yachts must be electric/battery powered, and the Steam Fair provides a rare opportunity for our steam launches to sail on the Water.
