Three Wildlife Trusts have joined together to showcase their work and describe nature reserves local to Collyweston. These include Collyweston Quarries (aka ‘The Deeps’) which has a wealth of limestone-loving flora and fauna. And also Rutland Water, with information about the Osprey Project, and several other reserves nearby. Visitors may pick up leaflets useful for planning days out exploring local nature.

The Priest’s House is one of the National Trust’s smallest properties and dates back to the 15th century. Inside there are just two rooms – one up, one down – with a selection of period furniture and display boards. Upstairs is an unusual collection of local historical items, including a gentleman’s swimming costume dating back to 1935!
