British politician, historian and adventurer, Rory Stewart has a deep knowledge of history and unparalleled experience of some of the world’s toughest war zones. A member of parliament for Penrith and the Border since 2010, Rory has had a busy May so far:

Rory presented children from Wigton’s Nelson Thomlinson School with a plaque  to commemorate their planting of Norwegian maple trees celebrating the 750th anniversary of Wigton’s Market Charter in 2012.

He joined over two hundred locals at the proposed Carwath Wind Farm site to protest against the erecting of three wind turbines, saying: “I am personally strongly opposed to the building of turbines in Penrith and the Border, for reasons of local democracy, economy and landscape.”

Rory has also been actively lobbying Planning Minister Nick Boles to provide more government and CLT support in order to assist community-led affordable housing projects.

Alongside documentary-making, book writing and speaking, it is clear Rory balances his role as politician successfully!
