St George's Barracks are a military installation near to the village of North Luffenham in Rutland.

History[edit | edit source]

The barracks were established, on the site of the former RAF North Luffenham airbase, in 1998. They became the home of the Royal Regiment of Fusiliers in 1999,[1] of the King's Own Royal Border Regiment in 2003[2] and of the 16th Regiment Royal Artillery in 2007.[3]

In 2013 16th Regiment Royal Artillery received the Freedom of Oakham on behalf of the barracks.[4]
