Uppingham, Leicestershire

Mathematical Gazetteer of the British Isles

Uppingham, about 7 miles north of Corby, is the site of Uppingham School, a public school where Charles Howard Hinton was a teacher from 1880 to 1886: he went to teach in Japan for some years. At this time Howard Candler, a friend of Edwin Abbott Abbott, was also teaching here, providing a possible link between these two proponents of other dimensions. [1]
