From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Hambleton is a village and civil parish in Rutland, England. It is located about two miles (3 km) east of Oakham. In 2001 it had a population of 140, increasing to 203 at the 2011 census. Since the construction of Rutland Water in the 1970s, the village has been closed off on three sides by water and the area is known as the Hambleton Peninsula.

The parish originally included the settlements of Upper Hambleton, Middle Hambleton and Nether Hambleton. The latter two have now been almost completely submerged by the construction of Rutland Water (originally known as Empingham Reservoir).
