Festival Promises

Feast of Entertainment Georgian colour, spectacle and heritage make Stamford’s third Georgian Festival (21-24 September) an unmissable weekend. Organisers South Kesteven District Council confirm a return of popular highlights from 2015, including the sell-out Georgian Costume Ball, historic venues such as the Town Hall opening their doors, street markets and an outdoor re-enactment of the town’s bloody Bull Run tradition. Horses and a vintage carriage will again deliver unforgettable rides through the town’s ancient streets and the historic Meadows area will host military encampments and period stallholders. Stamford’s Georgian heritage will come to life with a talk by Amanda Vickery, English historian, writer, radio and television presenter, one of a programme of talks set to enthrall and inform. New on the programme is Mad Science - with a Georgian twist - bringing kids the fun, the amazement and the wonder of all things science to The Corn Exchange for school and family shows.

Stamford I

t’s a memorable year for picturesque and ancient Stamford – 50 years since it became the first conservation town in the country. 2017 gives the mellow limestone town particular reason to celebrate, and extra impetus for the autumn’s Georgian Festival (21-24 September). It will be the third such festival organised by South Kesteven District Council, building on two superb events crammed with colour, spectacle, markets, military re-enactments and costume with historic venues opening their doors to host events. Stamford, boasts over 600-plus listed limestone buildings, is the perfect festival backdrop with a stone heritage which has drawn accolades over the years, and tourists from far and wide. Visitors sense the modern vibrancy and community spirit which won the national accolade of Britain’s best place to live

set to celebrate

in 2013. Unchanged stone and cobbled streets, narrow alleyways and hidden courtyards reveal niche shops, tea rooms, eateries, designer boutiques and a bustling Friday market with a Farmers Market every fortnight. Stamford’s busy Tourist Information Centre sits within the Arts Centre on St Mary’s Street - built in 1768 and one of the oldest provincial theatres in England - with accommodation information, town guides, local walks and valuable advice. Follow the Town Trail along streets that once echoed to one of England’s bloodiest customs - the Stamford Bull Run - or relax on water meadows beside the winding River Welland. Ancient 15th century almhouses at Browne’s Hospital are open during the summer and Melbourn Brothers’ All Saints Brewery combines antiquity with a decent tipple.


Visit the Town Hall to read the tale of Daniel Lambert – once Britain’s fattest man - whose effigy ushers you in to see priceless regalia, paintings depicting the Bull Run and perhaps a peep at the restored cells? Stamford has retained whole streets entirely made up of Georgian houses, an architectural legacy which has drawn innumerable film companies for classics such as Pride and Prejudice and the BBC TV series of Middlemarch. A wealth of attractions lie on the town’s doorstep including Burghley House, an Elizabethan gem, and Rutland Water to the west is a haven for fishing, cycling, walking sailing and wildlife. Stamford Shakespeare Company at nearby Tolethorpe Hall presents one of the finest open air theatre summer seasons, and make a date for the annual Land Rover Burghley Horse Trials (31 August – 3 September) to enjoy world class equestrian horse trials action with its own shopping offer of 600+retail outlets. www.southwestlincs.com 5

Grantham a town of genius and firsts

F

rom ancient coaching inns to celebrated home town status for world leaders in their fields, Grantham has tempting credentials and a host of reasons to visit. Sir Isaac Newton, born just south of Grantham at Woolsthorpe Manor, inspires a biennial Gravity Fields Festival which offers a mix of science, arts, heritage, outdoor events and sheer spectacle. It’s an event that drew an audience of 68,000 to the town in 2016, with a host of eminent patrons, speakers and world class arts entertainment. Woolsthorpe Manor staged a mini festival at the same time to celebrate the ‘Year of Wonders’ as visitors and the scientific community marked the 350th anniversary of Newton’s law of gravitational forces – prompted by the falling apple at his birthplace. Grantham Museum has a permanent exhibition dedicated to one of the town’s

8 www.southwestlincs.com

most famous daughters and the country’s first woman Prime Minister – Margaret Thatcher. There is also a reminder of Edith Smith, the first woman police constable in England given full powers of arrest in 1915. Mentioned as a Royal Manor in the Domesday Book, Grantham has come a long way since the days when it was recognised as a stopping place for kings and nobleman. The Angel and Royal Hotel, originally a court of King John, still welcomes visitors to its High Street location, adding to Grantham’s wealth of hotel accommodation in and around the town. Trains on the direct east coast rail line to London are operated by Virgin and Hull Trains, bringing Grantham to within an hour’s travel from London. The town’s parish church of St Wulfram’s boasts a soaring 282ft spire – one of the most important town churches in England. Grantham’s cafe culture goes from strength to strength, with specialist cafe’s vying for trade alongside restaurants from award wining Harry’s Place, one of the smallest dining experiences with a Michelin rating in the UK, to eating places for every palate. A bustling Saturday street market serves a growing population of over 40,000, with Grantham’s growth agenda now delivering results with work well under way on the southern relief road to compliment its first class road links. It has one of the best leisure facilities in the East Midlands at The Meres and a wealth of other attractions from championship standard 18 hole golf courses to smaller


rural courses, impressive castles and manor houses, and unrivalled countryside for walking, riding and cycling. Grantham has a wonderful choice of places to visit as well as a selection of splendid parks and open spaces for people to spend their leisure time. On its doorstep are lots of local attractions including Belton House, Belvoir Castle, the seat of the Duke and Duchess of Rutland, Grimsthorpe Castle, Burghley House near Stamford, home of the famous horse trials and world class show jumping at Arena UK near Grantham. On top of that there’s the opportunity to enjoy a wide range of events covering everything from theatre through to music and art. All that’s left is to find a great place to stay to savour all that the area has to offer. And we have plenty of those too. From hotels to coaching inns, b & b’s, to guest houses, farmhouses to self catering accommodation, we have something to suit every taste and budget. www.southwestlincs.com 9

Bourne

A market town with ancient roots

K

nown worldwide as the birthplace of motor racing, home of both English Racing Automobiles and British Racing Motors, Bourne today is a thriving market town with a charm of its own. Its Heritage Museum is a popular visitor attraction in Baldock’s Mill, Bourne’s only remaining mill of the three listed in the Domesday Book, complete with its new mill wheels. It’s where local history comes to life, from the water and railway industries to agriculture, wartime memorabilia and Raymond Mays, Bourne’s most famous racing driver. It celebrates a motor racing heritage that saw Graham Hill and Jackie Stewart at the wheel of Bourne-manufactured Formula 1 cars. Modern Bourne welcomes visitors to that rare commodity – free parking. Significant regeneration has added a spring to its step, with independent shops and a traditional market on Thursdays. Its name comes from the Anglo Saxon meaning water or stream and it has been a thoroughfare since the times of the Romans. It is reputedly the birthplace of both Hereward the Wake, leader of the local resistance to the Norman Conquest of England, and Charles Worth, widely considered as the father of haute couture. Renowned for its open spaces, parks and woodland and with 71 listed buildings, Bourne has a pleasant setting with attractive countryside and villages to visit. Close to Bourne is one of the best walking areas in the district – Bourne Wood – a Forestry Commission-owned remnant of the

12 www.southwestlincs.com

wild wood that cloaked England after the last ice age with miles of accessible well-marked tracks and a large picnic area. Don’t miss Grimsthorpe Castle to the west, open from April to September. Built in 1540 for a visit by Henry Vlll, it has magnificent state rooms with collections, tapestries and paintings, 3000 acres of landscaped parkland, gardens, adventure playground, cycle trail and hire shop.

Market Deeping and Deeping St James ..........including West Deeping and Langtoft

N

estling beside the River Welland, on the southern borders of South Kesteven, sits the town of Market Deeping and the villages of Deeping St James, West Deeping and Langtoft . Collectively known as The Deepings, there is a wealth of local history to explore alongside all the trappings of modern day life. Home to charming 17th century stone buildings, Market Deeping developed around the original commercial use of the river. It is still a major asset providing scenic walks and hosting some of the town’s popular events such as The Deepings Raft Race and the annual Duck Race.

14 www.southwestlincs.com

Now considered one of best districts to live in, according to a Halifax Quality of Life survey, The Deepings has developed significantly over the years, attracting major new businesses while still acting as a service centre. For visitors and locals alike there is the beautiful Grade 1 listed church of St Guthlac - continuously in use in Market Deeping for at least 800 years - as well as notable inns, award winning restaurants and a good range of shops. There is an antiques and craft centre open to the public seven days a week, with antique furniture, books, pictures and lots more, plus stunning countryside to explore.
