Grantham Town Information

Use the links on the left to find information and images for the towns and villages throughout Lincolnshire...

A famous old market town, Grantham has long been an important hub for travellers. It still has some fine coaching inns, including the Angel and Royal Hotel, which dates from the 15th century.

At one time Grantham was an important centre for both wool and agriculture. While its most obvious landmark is the 280ft spire of St. Wulfran’s Church, the building itself contains a chained library with volumes dating back to 1472. It was possibly the first public library in England.
