Normanton Church by Rutland Water

Much altered in the 19th and 20th centuries, Normanton's little Georgian church was originally condemned to be drowned when Rutland Water was constructed.

The authorities relented and today, with its floor level substantially raised as part of the work to save it from the flood, it is one of the little county's best known landmarks.

I was there this afternoon with Disgruntled Radical.
