Sleaford is a large and busy market town in Lincolnshire. The town is located close to the A15 and A17, making Sleaford easily accessible by road. In addition to road connections, Sleaford has plenty of rail connectivity with Nottingham-Skegness, known as the Poacher Line, and the Redwing Line between Lincoln and Peterborough running through the town. These transport links offer those living in the area good connectivity to London, Nottingham, Boston, Spalding and many more destinations. In addition to rail connectivity the town is served by local bus services in town and bus routes between Sleaford and Lincoln, and Sleaford and Grantham.
Surrounded by fenland, Sleaford’s skyline is dominated by the 144-foot spire of St Deny’s Church which dates back to the 12th century. No wonder the neighbouring flat fenlands also proved to be the ideal location for RAF stations and the area has a rich aviation history including Cranwell Aviation Heritage Centre. More recently Sleaford has become home to the nationally acclaimed National Centre for Craft & Design with exhibitions from the most innovative, challenging and accomplished artists to new and emerging talent. For historians, Cogglesford Watermill, which dates back to Saxon times, is the only Sherriff’s watermill still in operation in England. The mill lies on the River Slea and millers have produced flour on this site for over 1,000 years.
