Barrowden is a pretty village in Rutland, 5 miles from Uppingham.

The main road between Leicester and Peterborough formerly came through the village, but it is now bypassed.

It has delightful greens and a duckpond.

It was at Barrowden in 1830 that Thomas Cook married Marianne, who helped him greatly with his subsequent businss ventures.
