The Rutland Agricultural Society

The Rutland Agricultural Society’s origins date back to 1788 to the Leicestershire and Rutland Agricultural Society. The first supporter of this was the Earl of Winchelsea, owner of Burley on the Hill Estate. In 1794, John Crutchley, of Burley on the Hill, wrote in a Board of Agriculture report, ‘Are there any societies instituted in the county for the improvement of agriculture? Answer none’.
