Boy will be boys IR 720 nm

By johnnyjohhny  
Whilst visiting the Rutland waters on this day i stumbled upon a weeding about to unfold and boys were not going to let them stop them skimming stones.
Normanton church is a Rutland icon. This lovely classical building stands on a narrow peninsula of land jutting out into Rutland Water. It was created by architect Thomas Cundy for the Earl of Ancaster, on the foundations of earlier buildings dating back to the 14th century. The medieval church here was rebuilt in the 1760s in classical style and again rebuilt by the 4th baronet to create the church we see today.
When Rutland Water was created in the 1970s the church was threatened with being sunk beneath the waves and lost forever. Local groups campaigned to save the building, and a compromise was reached.

The lower part of the building was reinforced to protect against water damage and the upper section was turned into a local museum, with displays on the creation of the Rutland Water reservoir, local history and geography.
