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, of the King's Own Royal Border Regiment in 2003 and of the 16th Regiment Royal Artillery in 2007.
In 2013 16th Regiment Royal Artillery received the Freedom of Oakham on behalf of the barracks.
